English cricketer Tom Curran’s tussle with an umpire on the field has cost him dearly. A video recently went viral in which Tom was seen misbehaving with the umpire.

Tom Curran has now been banned for four matches in the Big Bash League (BBL) for misbehaving and disobeying the umpire’s instructions.

The incident occurred before the match between the Sydney Sixers and the Hobart Hurricanes on December 11 when Tom Curran did not follow the umpire’s instructions not to run on the wicket in practice.

For the first time, the fourth umpire warned him not to run on the wicket, but when Tom started to do the same for the second time, the umpire stood in the way and stopped him. However, Tom ran towards the umpire and then walked out of the pitch. The umpire expressed anger at this, at which point Tom Curran responded rudely to him.

The incident happened on Thursday after which the cricketer was handed a four-match ban by Cricket Australia.

Under this punishment, Curran, who represents Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash, will not be able to play the next four matches on behalf of his team.

Curran will also play for Islamabad United in Pakistan Super League (PSL) 9.
