Collingwood's four-match ban comes hot on the heels of yesterday's controversial match at The Oval. With Grant Elliott being run out after colliding with Ryan Sidebottom, Collingwood was offered the chance to withdraw his appeal. He turned it down, however, a decision he later apologised for.

A deficit of more than two overs in an ODI brings with it an automatic Level 2 charge against the captain involved, but if that captain has already been charged and found guilty of the offence within the preceding 12 months then the charge is elevated to Level 3.

England also felt short of the required over-rate against India in Bristol on August 24 last year. On that occasion the team was, as at The Oval on Wednesday, three overs down and Collingwood was fined 50% of his match fee. The regulations also state that players shall be docked 5% of their match fees for every over short of the required mark, with the captain fined double.

Bad luck.
I like Collingwood. He is fiesty little customer.
All the other capitanos should take a note of it.

I think Ash did, or else, the match referee should have been on top of it.
24 hours already passed.

It's a ban imposed at the right time. He has been doing this throughout the series.

I dont understand how this works. If he has been offered to withdraw his appeal, it means its optional. Turning it down is a bad sportsmanship no doubt, but it can't be classified as misconduct since it was offered as in take it or leave it.

He was banned for slow over rate, not for that run out.

Say for example, I was doing something. My dad gave me the option of not doing it. I still did it. So after I did it, he came to the conclusion that he'll slap me for it.

Where is it wrong?

England have been doing it this for some time so the ban was coming.

Though do the ICC take into account that a batter could waste time & make the fielding team look slow?

Scoring test and ODI 100s, posting quality Bangla posts AND opening wonderful match threads, and now Captaining the Poms -- does KP know how to manipulate time ?

What a guy !!
