Matthew Harris, the wicketkeeper for the Lions, will miss the opening match of the 2007 SuperSport Series after being found guilty of breaching the United Cricket Board code of conduct.

Harris appeared before a disciplinary committee, chaired by Advocate Michael Kuper SC, at the UCB and Cricket South Africa head office in Johannesburg on Tuesday.

The charges arose from incidents during the SuperSport match between the Warriors and Lions played at East London from February 23-26. Harris was charged and found guilty of contravening two clauses, one relating to showing dissent at an umpiring decision and the other of using crude or abrasive language.
