The Match Referee said Odumbe had been suspended for two matches for
breaching 8(c) of the ICC Code of Conduct. According to clause 8(c),
Players and team officials are barred from making any public pronouncement
or media comment which is detrimental to the game of cricket. The irony of
the whole episode was that umpire Orchard and Odumbe returned to their
hotel, sitting side by side, in the Chrysler driven by the umpire!
