West Indies batsman Nicholas Pooran was banned from four T20Is as he had been found guilty of changing the condition of the ball during West Indies' third ODI against Afghanistan on Monday.
Pooran was charged of ball tempering after a video footage showed him scratching the ball with his thumbnail.
With this Pooran will miss the next four T20Is for the West Indies.
“I want to issue a sincere apology to my teammates, supporters and the Afghanistan team for what transpired on the field of play on Monday in Lucknow. I recognise that I made an extreme error in judgement and I fully accept the ICC penalty. I want to assure everyone that this is an isolated incident and it will not be repeated. I promise to learn from this and come back stronger and wiser," said Pooran admitting to the offence.
