Former Australia fast bowler who behaved poorly in the Legends Cricket League Mitchell Johnson has been punished. He has been fined 50 percent of the match fee. Players who have retired from international cricket are playing in this league. The match was played between Bhilwara Kings and India Capitals on Sunday. In this match, India Capitals fast bowler Johnson had a dispute with Bhilwara Kings batsman Yusuf Pathan.
This matter had increased so much that there was a scuffle between the two. The fight was settled after the intervention of the rest of the team players and the umpires. When Pathan was batting, Johnson said something to him, hearing which the Indian batsman got angry and he went ahead answering his words. Then when he came to Johnson, he pushed Pathan.
Disciplinary committee took the decision
The matter was investigated by the disciplinary committee of the league. It is headed by former India coach and captain Ravi Shastri. After watching the video of this fight, this committee decided to punish the bowler and also gave a warning.
League CEO Raman Raheja said in a statement, “We are here to promote Serious Cricket. What happened on the field yesterday should not have happened. We watched this video many times and then came to some conclusion. I think everyone must have got a clear message that sportsmanship is above all.”
