West Indies Cricketer Kavon Fubler banned for seven years by BCB


  • Kavon Fubler may have escaped with a lighter sentence had he not thrown the ball at umpire Cal Waldron after leaving the field, and had he not been heard to say he was going to smash his stumps if given out, immediately before doing so

    West Indies Cricketer Kavon Fubler was has been banned from cricket for seven years for smashing the stumps and abusing an umpire after being given out leg before wicket (lbw) during a Premier Division game.

    Fubler appeared at a disciplinary meeting when he was charged with a number of Level 4 offenses relating to his behavior for his club side Willow Cuts in the game against Bailey’s Bay at The Sea Breeze Oval, reports CMC.

    Despite his behavior, Fubler continued playing in the game, bowling 6.3 overs as Bailey’s Bay won by seven wickets. Fubler may have escaped with a lighter sentence had he not thrown a ball at umpire Cal Waldron after leaving the field, and had he not been heard to say he was going to smash his stumps if given out, immediately before doing so.

    Southampton Rangers’ captain Janeiro Tucker served a one-game suspension last month after knocking over a stump in frustration at being hit for a four. In 2011, Fubler was banned from the Somerset Cricket Club after he subjected selector Molly Simons to a foul-mouthed tirade when he was left out of the club’s squad for a match, Bermuda’s premier domestic annual fixture between Somerset and St George’s.
