The Trinidad and Tobago Cricket
Board (TTCB) has imposed a five-year
ban on a spectator who threw a missile
on the field during the final of the Celkon
Mobile Cup between India and Sri Lanka
on Thursday at the Queen s Park Oval.
Vijay Outim pleaded guilty to the charge
of throwing missiles in a public event and
was placed on a $1,000 bond to keep the
peace for one year and in default of which
he will serve two weeks in prison with
The TTCB said that its decision to
impose a ban on Outim is to send a strong
message that hooliganism in any form
would not be tolerated.
Consequently, Outim is banned from
attending any regional or international
cricket held in the twin-island Republic
under the auspices of the TTCB.
Media reports are that Outim threw a
partially filled plastic bottle onto the field
of play, striking Sri Lanka player Lasith
Malinga. He attempted to flee the scene
by was held by security officers who hand-
ed him over the Police at the grounds.
The incident also resulted in a brief halt
The five-year ban imposed by the TTCB
is believed to be the first disciplinary
action taken on any spectator at inter-
national cricket in the Caribbean.
The TTCB said that a picture of Outim
would be circulated to security personnel
at all TTCB events to prevent him from
entering for the next five years.
