Azeem Rafiq has been suspended from all cricket for a month by the England and Wales Cricket Board after his Twitter tirade.
The England under-19 captain pleaded guilty to charges of breaching ECB directives and bringing the game into disrepute at a disciplinary hearing on Tuesday, following his foul-mouthed rant at manager John Abrahams on the social networking site last week.
And the ECB decided sufficient punishment would be to suspend the Yorkshire off-spinner for a month. Rafiq, 19, must also pay £500 towards the costs of the hearing.
“The panel ordered Rafiq to be suspended from all cricket under ECB jurisdiction for a period of one month from 26th July and ordered him to pay £500 towards the costs of the hearing,” an ECB statement read.
“The panel considered this to be a serious breach of the regulations particularly given Rafiq’s position as captain of the England U19 side.”
Rafiq’s four-letter attack on coach John Abrahams came after he was left out of the second U-19 Test against Sri Lanka for disciplinary reasons.
The outburst had already seen him be suspended by his county Yorkshire, who vowed to begin their own investigation into the matter.
