Colin Munro, the top all-rounder from New Zealand faced a suspension for using “inappropriate language” in a domestic match. The incident happened last week, when the player was on a match in the domestic circuit. Following the suspension, Munro will be barred from the match with Plunkett Shield. Colin Munro has played along the international team of New Zealand and has been a match winner in several occasions. However, lately, he has been through a low form that gave the way for new players in the team replacing him. Since being dropped, the player is busy in the domestic circuit.
In the recent fray, Munro had to undergo a code of conduct hearing being accused of using inappropriate language in the match between Auckland and Canterbury at Eden Park. This was the third instance if the player having breached the code of conduct in the past three years. The hearing was on March 8 and he was found guilty and is suspended from one match in the tournament. As stated by New Zealand Cricket, the panel has also gone through the previous records of the player in the area and handed down a one-match suspension. The player has not appealed against the ruling and he might have accepted the verdict.
Munro was on fray for the same reason only a month back. In the Ford Trophy, he was alleged of breaking the code of conduct in the match. This first stance was in 2014 November in the country. The player has also received a strong backlash in Australia in February, this year. He was fined 1600 dollars in Big Bash League for using obscene language or a gesture in an offensive and insulting manner. Earlier, Munro was dropped from the national team due to poor scores in consecutive matches. However, his absence in team Auckland will have a good dig. He has been a top scorer in the team knocking massive runs in the matches.
