Martin van Jaarsveld, the South Africa and Titans batsman and Quinton Friend, the Dolphins bowler, have been found guilty of breaching Cricket South Africa's Code of Conduct and are duly suspended.

The issue arose during Dolphins' and Titans' match at Kingsmead two weeks ago when the "conduct and actions of both players [was] considered in breach of clause 1.3" CSA's Code of Conduct. The clause relates to verbal abuse.

Van Jaarsveld is not permitting to play in Titans' next two SuperSport Series matches, while Friend is banned from one Dolphins game.
