Amla banned for dissent

Hashim Amla has been banned for one SuperSport Series match for his behaviour in South Africa A's defeat against England at Potchefstroom in November.

Amla's punishment follows a guilty plea at a Cricket South Africa disciplinary hearing on Monday and means he is unavailable to play for Nashua Dolphins against Chevrolet Warriors in this week's first-class match at Kingsmead.

The right-handed batsman has been picked in a 15-man South Africa squad to face England in the first Test at Centurion, which starts three days after the Dolphins' fixture on December 16.

The South Africa A captain was reported by umpire Brian Jerling for dissent. CSA disciplinary commissioner Michael Kuper said in his report: "The breach is a serious one aggravated by the fact that it occurred during a tour match and was committed by the captain - who should have set an example."
