West Indies head coach Stuart Law has been banned for two one-day internationals by the ICC following comments made to the match officials during his side's Test defeat by India in Hyderabad.

Law, who will leave his current role to take up a similar position at Middlesex at the end of the year, was cited for breaching the code of conduct article specifically relating to "public criticism of, or inappropriate comment in relation to a match incident, player or official" after entering the TV umpire's room and making "inappropriate" remarks towards the fourth official, Nitin Menon.

The incident occured on Sunday following the dismissal of Kieran Powell.

Law also received a 100 per cent fine for his actions in Hyderabad

According to the ICC, Law "went to the TV umpire’s room and made inappropriate comments. He then walked to the fourth umpire’s area and, in the presence of the players, again directed inappropriate comments at the fourth official".

The former Australia international admitted the offence on Monday, avoiding the need for a discpinary hearing.

He was fined 100 per cent of his match fee and handed three demerit points, taking his 24-month total to four and sparking an automatic two-match suspension, which he has accepted.

Law will be banned for the two ODIs on October 21 and October 24, in Guwahati and Visakhapatnam.
