    Surprised that one wasn't mentioned earlier.

    Was Gatting banned for his barmaid bonking or just sacked as captain? That long ago i can't remember.

    Not sure off hand, but he certainly missed the next Test - real reason of course was telling Shakoor Rana how many beans made five

    I'm excluding matchfixers here because that makes things too easy. Also the quality of the offence is taken into account as much as cricketing ability


    1. David Warner
    2. Shane Watson
    3. Viv Richards
    4. Kevin Pietersen
    5. Inzamam-ul-Haq
    6. Darren Lehmann
    7. Andrew Symonds
    8. Shane Warne
    9. Praveen Kumar
    10. Ted Pooley +
    11. Ed Giddins

    12th: John Mooney

    Mooney only selected because of the completely random nature of his ban. Same for Giddins.

    Watson gets in more for his reaction to Homework-gate than Homework-gate itself. Botham's relatively tame pot smoking then gives way to Darren Lehmann's racial abuse.

    Ted Pooley rather blows away the period constraints in the OP!

    In that case I'll nominate Boycott and Barrington, both dropped by England in the 1960s after getting big centuries (in Sir Geoffrey's case a double) but doing so too slowly for the selectors' liking - never described as a suspension as such but amounts to the same thing afaic

    Didn't read the OP while compiling it, tbh. Replace with Latif or Ramdin as you feel most applicable.

    Removing that, Roy Gilchrist to open the attack.

    Kapil was once dropped from a Calcutta test because the selctors felt he'd played a rash shot. The only test he'd missed in his career, IIRC.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    I think John Snow was suspended for a match after the Gavaskar incident in 1971. He certainly missed the next test, and I think it's because of suspension.

    Going back to Gatting, I don't think he was suspended in 1988 but he didn't feel like playing after being stripped of the captaincy despite Peter May stating that he believed his version of the hotel incident.

    And then, if we're talking about being suspended, there's the bloke who was hanged for murder - some WI cricketer whose name escapes me.

    If we're going prior to 1970, there's Subhas Gupte who had his international career ended because the selectors felt he should've prevented his roommate and fellow player Kripal Singh from asking the hotel receptionist out on a date. True story.

    Dennis Lillee (kicking Javed Miandad in the arse)

    Was Lillee really suspended for the Javed incident?

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.
