Australian international cricket umpire Gerard Abood was fined an embarrassing $ 5,000 fine for questioning his son’s sacking in a game under the age of 13

Abood is a member of Cricket Australia’s refereeing group and has headed nine international matches. He contested an exit decision that grabbed his son to 98 earlier this month

CA posted indictments against Abood relating to the Sept. Confirmed November in a representative game between the Inner West Harbor Junior District Association and the St George District Cricket Association

Abood’s actions have not been described as “against the spirit of the game” by any agent or official, or could be detrimental to the interests of cricket or could discredit the game of cricket “

In addition to his heavy fine, the 48-year-old was ordered to do 20 hours of community service by teaching local referees

The St. The George District Cricket Association filed the complaint sanctioning Abood, accusing him of acting intimidating – according to The Tonk

“I accept that I have violated the Cricket Australia Code of Conduct and I apologize wholeheartedly,” said Abood

“My actions on the day it was reported did not reflect my usual behavior and attitudes towards sport and were a misjudgment on my part”

“As a volunteer, I am very much aware of the sacrifices people make to make junior sport successful,” he said

“I have never used nasty or intimidating language, but given my position in the game, I should have known better than to question the officers’ decisions that day

“Again, I sincerely feel sorry for my part in this incident and will work hard to restore my reputation as one who devotes much of my time to upholding and upholding the true spirit of cricket.”
