Charlesworth angry with ban decision

Mumbai Magicians coach Ric Charlesworth has termed ridiculous the subtle punishment to suspend Punjab Warriors’ manager for a match for fielding 12 players in Sunday’s HIL game.

The Warriors had played with 12 men for the last five minutes of the final quarter against Mumbai, prompting the home side to lodge a complaint, which resulted in a suspension for Jagbir Singh (Punjab Warriors manager) for one game.

‘This is like slapping somebody with wet tissue. It is ridiculous. In my opinion, in all the competition we play in our country, if you have 12 fielders in the game, then you don’t win the match. The game was close and for five minutes and not for a few seconds, they had 12 men,’ Charlesworth said. ‘I find that extraordinary. You don’t win points when you do that.’
