Surrey`s Andre Nel banned for dissent
London: Former South Africa pace bowler Andre Nel will sit out Surrey`s next two games after being suspended by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) on Wednesday.
Nel received the automatic ban after showing dissent at an umpire`s decision during Sunday`s one-day match against Lancashire.
The bowler was reported by umpires Neil Bainton and Rob Bailey for a level two breach of the ECB`s discipline code and received three penalty points.
"Nel has previously received six penalty points and, as a result of accumulating nine penalty points within a two-year period, he has received an automatic suspension," the ECB said in a statement posted on its website.
