The charge has been laid by the on-field umpires Steve Davis and Nigel Llong, third umpire Tony Hill and fourth umpire Richard Kettleborough.

Ramdin has pleaded not guilty to the offence, and a hearing will take place in London Monday.

The charge related to an incident in Pakistan’s innings when Ramdin claimed a catch off Misbah-ul-Haq.

The range of penalties for all first Level 2 breaches are the imposition of a fine of between 50-100 percent of a player’s match fee and or a suspension of up to two (2) ODI matches.
