Cape Town - Is cricket set to follow rugby and cricket by introducing yellow and red cards?

It appears so, and the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) is set to introduce a

trial that will look at bringing in yellow and red cards into "club, university and schools cricket to stamp out excessive sledging and curb the increase of violent behaviour."

A report published in the Telegraph by English journalist Nick Hoult says that players could also be 'sin-binned' for 10 overs, while offences more serious could see a player removed from play for the remainder of the match.

A batsman also faced the possibility of being "retired out" if he stepped too far out of line.

The least serious offences would see a team penalised by five runs.

The MCC confirmed that they would be trialing the system this coming season at a university level.

The article adds that five cricket matches in England last year were abandoned due to violence.
