Bermuda cricketer Jason Anderson has been slapped with a life ban for inciting a hair-raising brawl during a club match in the small island nation.

While Anderson was banned for life, O'Brien was barred for a "period sufficient to include 6 Logic 50 over matches".

After this incident, the match was halted and Anderson was sent off the field. Later, the cricket contest resumed and Cleveland won by 72 runs.

Right-handed batsman O'Brien too has played for Bermuda, in 9 ODIs and 3 T20Is. He was also punished with Level 3 breach. He was suspended from 6 50-over matches.

Bermuda Cricket Board (BCB) said, "Jason Anderson formally of Cleveland County Cricket Club has been found guilty of a Level 4 2.4.2 of the Code of Conduct: Physical assault of another Player and has been given a life ban from all cricket and any involvement in the game of cricket in Bermuda in any capacity."
