Players convicted of ball tampering will now be suspended for upto six Test matches after the International Cricket Council (ICC) installed harsher punishments for foul play. At the conclusion of the ICC’s five-day Annual Conference in Dublin, the governing body announced four new offences in the Code of Conduct and upped the penalty for Level 3 offences, which now includes ball tampering. New offences include: Attempting to gain an unfair advantage (cheating, other than ball-tampering), personal abuse, audible obscenity and disobeying an umpire’s instructions.
