The West Indian vice-captain has been charged with "conduct contrary to the spirit of the game" for claiming a dropped catch during his side's match against Pakistan on Friday. The Caribbean skipper claimed the catch off Misbah-ul-Haq, despite the ball touching the floor. Ramdin had pleaded not guilty and a hearing took place on Monday. Chris Broad of the Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees adjudicated the matter.

The charge against the 28-year-old Ramdin was laid by the on-field umpires Steve Davis and Nigel Llong, third umpire Tony Hill and fourth umpire Richard Kettleborough.   

Broad, explaining his decision, said: "This is regarded as a serious offence as it is the  responsibility of all players to act in the spirit of the game.  I hope Mr Ramdin has learnt his lesson from this incident and that we will not see such behaviour by him or any player in the future."
