Red cards are to be introduced in matches at all levels from local club matches to internationals in an effort to stamp out the rising number of violent incidents in games.

The MCC's world cricket committee has recommended that umpires should have the power to send off players in cases of threats to an umpire or physical assault on a player, umpire, official or spectator. The punishment is set to come into force from October, when the MCC redrafts the Laws of Cricket.

At the moment violence is mainly confined to amateur cricket but the new law will also apply to the international game.
