Bermuda Cricket Board (BCB) officials, will be looking into the issue of an umpire possibly breaching rules.
The umpire in question is also the editor of the local daily, Dexter Smith. Mr. Smith posted a story online with the headline “Bermuda Cricket Board bans spitting culprit Torleair Caines for four matches”
www.islandstats.com asked the BCB whether this information had been made public. A BCB Official indicated that the information was sent only to the Warwick Workmen’s Club, and the Umpires. The official confirmed the BCB had not made it public at the time of the inquiry from www.islandstats.com.
www.islandstats.com asked the Warwick Workmen’s Club President Lorenzo Tucker if he had been contacted by the Editor of the local daily, to confirm the club had received correspondence from the BCB, in relation to the disciplinary matter involving Mr. Caines. Mr. Tucker indicated he had not.
With the Editor of the daily also an umpire, BCB officials are looking into whether the internal email to the umpires was used for a story before the BCB knew if the player and or the club had been informed of the disciplinary committee’s decision.
