Van der Wath gets one-match ban



Chevrolet Knights allrounder Johan van der Wath has been banned for one Sunfoil Series match following a Cricket South Africa (CSA) disciplinary hearing, while Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras captain Justin Ontong is eligible to continue playing for his franchise pending the results of a ball test being carried out in Australia.

Van der Wath did not attend his hearing, but submitted a letter of apology for his behaviour.

He was found guilty by CSA Disciplinary Commissioner Professor Rian Cloete, of using "language that is seriously obscene, offensive or insulting towards another participant", a level 2 offence under the CSA Code of Conduct.

Van der Wath will have to sit out the his team's home game against the Chevrolet Warriors starting on Thursday.

The other matter addressed by the disciplinary hearing was a ball-tampering charge laid against Ontong during last weekend's Sunfoil Series match against the bizhub Highveld Lions, which the Cobras lost by eight wickets.

Cloete ruled that ball in question should be sent to Kookaburra in Australia for examination and testing, and no sanction was imposed.
