Footage went viral on social media appearing to show Pooran scratch his right thumbnail against the ball while shining it against his pants.



Five demerit points have been added to his record and he will now miss four T20I games for the West Indies.
Pooran said via an ICC statement: “I want to issue a sincere apology to my teammates, supporters and the Afghanistan team for what transpired on the field of play on Monday in Lucknow.


“I recognise that I made an extreme error in judgment and I fully accept the ICC penalty. I want to assure everyone that this is an isolated incident and it will not be repeated. I promise to learn from this and come back stronger and wiser.”
