Denesh Ramdin will not appeal against his two-match ban for falsely claiming a catch during the West Indies' two-wicket ICC Champions Trophy Group B victory over Pakistan.

Ramdin celebrated taking the wicket of Misbah ul-Haq at the Kia Oval after appearing to catch the ball after it flew off the Pakistan captain's inside edge.

Replays showed the gloveman had grounded the catch and then scooped it up again, causing the batsman to be reinstated.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) took a dim view of Ramdin's actions, banning him for two games and fining him his match fee after finding him guilty of "conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game".

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) revealed that Ramdin would not be contesting the punishment when it tweeted: "Wicket-keeper Denesh Ramdin has decided not to appeal his suspension and fine.

"He will therefore miss the matches vs India and South Africa."

Ramdin would be available for the Champions Trophy semi-finals should the Windies progress from their group.
