Zealand Club Cricketer: Cricket is a gentleman’s game. But sometimes there are conflicts in this game. This is the scar on the game of cricket. One such incident took place in New Zealand. In fact a cricketer there threatened to kill the umpire. With this he had to face a great punishment. The incident is related to a club level cricketer. The Poverty Bay Cricket Association has imposed a life ban on cricketer Timothy Wire after a December 4 match in Gisborne, New Zealand. This player threatened to kill the umpire. This is a Level 4 violation of the Code of Conduct for Cricket.
Timothy Wire has been accused of threatening to kill an umpire late after playing a match with the High School Old Boys Cricket Club. No inquest has been held into the allegations against the player. However, the committee that made the decision imposed a life ban with evidence. The player does not have the right to appeal against his decision after being found guilty in Level 4. Timothy Wire has been twice convicted of violating the rules of the Poverty Bay Cricket Association. Club chairman Isaac Hughes said publicly that the incident was “outrageous” and that such people had no place in cricket.
The seriousness of the case was realized and resolved with an independent panel. The verdict was handed down after a thorough investigation as well as hearing the arguments of the witnesses. New Zealand cricket manager Richard Book said the board was not yet in a position to comment. A cricketer has been banned for three-and-a-half years for torturing two opponents in September.
