Ashar Zaidi: Sussex discipline all-rounder for Twitter comments
Sussex have taken disciplinary action against Ashar Zaidi following comments made by the all-rounder on Twitter.
The 32-year-old has been given a suspended one-match ban after tweeting his reaction to umpire Nigel Llong giving him out against Somerset.
In a statement, Sussex said Zaidi had "apologised for his behaviour and regrets his actions deeply" and that they would not be commenting further.
Pakistan-born Zaidi was awarded a two-year deal by the county last November after initially joining them on a non-contract basis from Lancashire league cricket, in which he was the leading run-scorer and wicket-taker in 2013.
