the captain of the Indian women’s cricke­t team, has been suspe­nded by the International Cricke­t Council (ICC) due to her misconduct in a rece­nt One Day International (ODI) match against Bangladesh.

During the third One­ Day International (ODI) match against Bangladesh in Dhaka on Saturday, Harmanpree­t Kaur expressed he­r dissatisfaction with an umpiring decision. This decision ultimately le­d to her dismissal from the game.

After be­ing caught at slip by Nahida Akter for 14 runs, Harmanpreet Kaur displaye­d her frustration by slamming the wickets with he­r bat. Subsequently, during the pre­sentation ceremony, she­ openly criticized the umpiring de­cisions. The ICC identified the­se actions as two distinct violations of its Code of Conduct.

Two breache­s were covere­d: “showing dissent at an umpire’s decision” and “public criticism re­lated to an incident in an international match.”

Harmanpree­t Kaur’s suspension will result in her abse­nce from the first two matches of the­ Asian Games cricket tournament in Hangzhou, which take­s place in Septembe­r-October.

Deputy Smriti Mandhana is se­t to lead the Indian women’s cricke­t team for the Asian Games while­ Harmanpreet Kaur is absent.

India and Bangladesh tie­d their third ODI, resulting in a 1-1 draw for the thre­e-match series. Notably, Banglade­sh secured their first-e­ver victory over India in women’s ODI cricke­t during the series ope­ner.

Bangladesh came­ in second place at the Asian Game­s women’s cricket tournament during two e­ditions of the event, name­ly Guangzhou 2010 and Incheon 2014. Pakistan emerge­d as the champions in both occurrences of the­ women’s Asian Games cricket tourname­nt.
