Manoj Tiwary, the Bengal captain, has been suspended for a match and fined his entire match fee for his angry reaction on being dismissed lbw during his team's Vijay Hazare Trophy encounter against Jharkhand in Cuttack. Tiwary was miffed after being adjudged lbw for 3, off the bowling of Yaju Krishanatry.
"He was unhappy at the decision and he abused the umpire. Worse happened later when he brought out his anger in the dressing room. He damaged glass, mirror, switch boards and even dust-bins," Orissa Cricket Association secretary Asirbad Behera told PTI. "Behaviour of this order from a senior player like Tiwary, who has played for India, is disgraceful. This really leaves a bad example for the junior players."
Behera said he had also written to Jagmohan Dalmiya, the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president, asking for further action against Tiwary.
"I have asked him [Dalmiya] to take disciplinary action against him. The Bengal manager offered us money for the damage amounting to about Rs 40,000 (US$860)," Behera said. "But that's not an issue. This attitude should change."
Arun Mitra, the CAB joint-secretary, said that the CAB was considering further action. "Let him come back then we will see what can be done. We will have to see the manager's report," he said.
