Indiscipline reared it’s ugly head among spectators once again at Arnett Gardens Football Club’s Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex on Sunday night, after the team’s 2-2 draw and 4-3 aggregate defeat to Montego Bay United in their second-leg Red Stripe Premier League semi-final.The scene was reminiscent of Arnett Gardens’ loss to Waterhouse in the 2013-14 semi-final, when after battling to a 3-3 draw in the first-leg, Arnett Gardens lost the second-leg at home 1-0, following which supporters took out their frustration on the away team and match officials.Kashief Brown’s extra-time winner spurred some patrons into throwing bottles and other objects in the vicinity the MoBay United team and officials, as well as match officials.However, Premier League Clubs Association (PLCA) general manager, Andrew Price, says an investigation will to be carried out into the incident and the facts ascertained before any action, if any, will be taken against Arnett Gardens Football Club. He noted that this is a serious offence and if found guilty Arnett could face heavy sanctions.In the 2013-14 season, RSPL semi-final elimination did not go down well with the Arnett home fans, who took out their anger and disappointment on the match officials by throwing missiles and verbal threats. Officials and other important figures had to be escorted from the venue under heavy security. Gun shots were also heard during the melee.SIX-MATCH PROBATIONFor that incident, the Trench Town-based club was fined $200.000 and placed on a six-match probation.If found guilty again, Price warned Arnett could face great punishment, but insists that the facts will determine their next move.”We will have to get the report. The referee and the match coordinator will have to submit their reports. But like in any Premier League we will have to get the facts and deal with the situation after. Action (for missile throwing) would be taken against any club. But you are innocent until proven guilty and the facts will have to come to the committee and be proven. It wouldn’t be prudent of me to make any comment at this time,” he explained.”It’s a situation where you expect certain level of maturity. We will wait until we get documents from the match official, commissary and coordinator. Anything else we will deal with it as the facts are presented and it will be dealt with in the appropriate manner,” he said.
Brief Scores: New Zealand (93/2) beat India (92) by 8 wickets. Taylor (37*), Nicholls (30*), Bhuvneshwar (2/25) (SCORECARD) India’s first match without Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni in the one-day international team in four years turned out to be a disastrous one as they lost to New Zealand by 8 wickets in the inconsequential fourth ODI in Hamilton on Thursday.Trent Boult was the star of the show for the hosts as he picked up his 5th ODI five-wicket haul to bowl out India for 92, their lowest total in New Zealand in the format. India suffered their heaviest defeat while defending a total as the the hosts won with 212 balls to spare.The Kiwis in reply, lost the wickets of Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson inside 7 overs but Henry Nicholls and Ross Taylor ensured that no more wickets fell as they raced to victory in the 15th over. The win helped New Zealand register its first win in the five-match series which India lead 3-1.Nicholls remained unbeaten on 30 while Taylor scored 37 with Bhuvneshwar Kumar bagging two wickets for India.Earlier, India were shot out for their seventh lowest total in ODIs as Boult ran through the batting lineup with figures of 5 for 21.Notably, Kohli was not playing for India in the fourth ODI as the India captain was rested for the remainder of the New Zealand tour, including the T20I series, after the third ODI.Veteran wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni also missed the match as he failed to recover from the hamstring injury that kept him out of the third ODI as well. This is the first time since 2015 India played an ODI without both Dhoni and Kohli in the playing XI.advertisementThere it is! What a day at Seddon Park. An eight wicket win set up by a stunning spell of bowling by Trent Boult. Taylor 37* and Nicholls 30* finish things off.

He got the wickets of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, Kedar Jadhav and Hardik Pandya.De Grandhomme also managed to trouble the Indian batsmen by getting the ball to move in the air. The medium pacer broke India’s middle-order by removing Dinesh Karthik and Ambati Rayudu for 0. He also castled Bhuvneshwar Kumar to make sure the tail didn’t wag.Wrist-spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal then fought hard and stitched a 25-run partnership for the ninth wicket which ensured that India didn’t get bowled out for its lowest score in ODIs against New Zealand, which is 88.Stand-in captain Rohit certainly didn’t have a memorable time in what is also his 200th ODI. After losing the toss, he had said that India wanted to bat anyway in order to try and analyse a few things in the lead up to the World Cup.Not many expected the scorecard but India’s familiar batting woes failure to adapt to swing and seam were exposed by the New Zealand pacers who were relentlessly attacking the wickets.
