Harmanpreet Kaur may miss first two matches of Asian Games

The women’s cricket team captain is at risk of missing the first two games of the Asian Games due to her behaviour against umpires in the 3rd ODI against Bangladesh and Bangladesh cricket officials. ICC hasn’t announced the consequences due to procedural issues but is expected to come down heavily on the Indian captain.

According to the relevant ICC code of conduct rule, “When a player reaches four or more demerit points within a 24-month period, they are converted into suspension points, resulting in a ban. Two suspension points equate to a ban from one Test or two ODIs or two T20Is, whichever comes first for the player. Demerit Points remain on a player’s disciplinary record for 24 months from their imposition, after which they will be expunged.”
