Dottin suspended, to miss West Indies Women's NZ tour
Published on January 14, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

ST JOHN’S, Antigua -- The West Indies Cricket Board on Monday announced that Deandra Dottin has received a suspension.

This follows an incident during last year’s Women’s Tri-Nation T20 Series in Barbados.

The charge was that under Rule No. 6 of the WICB’s Code of Conduct she did “engage in behaviour unbecoming that could bring the game of cricket into disrepute or be harmful to the interests of cricket”.

On December 16, 2013, Dottin met with the WICB’s Disciplinary Committee where, on review of the presentations and evidence presented to the Tribunal, she was found guilty of the charge.

The WICB’s Disciplinary Committee confirmed that she has since offered an apology for her actions.

Dottin has been sentenced as follows:

1. That between January and February 2014 she undergoes evaluation, followed by a continued counselling programme;

2. That she undergoes continuing monitoring for a year, and that periodic reports from her counselling sessions be sent to the Disciplinary Tribunal and the WICB.

3. That she miss the upcoming tour of New Zealand tour in February and March.

4. That she is allowed the opportunity to meet with her two biggest cricketing idols as a means of mentorship.

Dottin is one of the leading cricketers in the women’s game. She was Player-of-the-Series during last year’s Women’s Tri Nation T20 Series which the West Indies won.

The 22-year-old became the first woman to make a century in T20 cricket when she blasted a record 112 not out for West Indies Women against South Africa Women in St Kitts during the 2010 ICC Women’s World T20 Tournament.
