What does ICC rule-book say?
- When a player reaches four or more demerit points within a 24-month period, they are converted into suspension points and a player is banned
- Two suspension points equate to a ban from one Test or two ODIs or two T20Is, whatever comes first for the player
- Demerit Points to remain on a Player or Player Support Personnel’s disciplinary record for a period of twenty-four (24) months from their imposition following which they will be expunged.
