Gabriel suspended for second Test after breaching ICC Code of Conduct

West Indies paceman Shannon Gabriel has been suspended for next week's second Test against Bangladesh after he gathered five demerit points within a 24-month period for disciplinary breaches, the International Cricket Council said on Friday.

Gabriel was handed two demerit points after he was found guilty of shoulder barging Bangladesh's Imrul Kayes during the opening day of the first Test in Chittagong.

The incident took place in the eighth over of the Test when, after bowling a delivery, Gabriel was judged to have made deliberate physical contact with batsman on his follow through.

Gabriel had earlier received three demerit points during the Jamaica Test against Pakistan in April 2017, when he was also fined 50 per cent of his match fee.

With the addition of two demerit points, he has reached the threshold of four demerit points, which have now been converted into two suspension points.

Two suspension points result in a ban from one Test or two ODIs or two T20Is, whichever comes first.

Gabriel was also fined 30 per cent of his match fee for Thursday's incident.
