Procter announced his verdict today after having a 45-minute hearing with Latif, Pakistan manager Haroon Rasheed, Bangladesh manager M.A. Latif Khan and the two umpires, Russell Tiffin of Zimbabwe and Asoka de Silva of Sri Lanka.
``As captain a lot of responsibility falls on Rashid Latif and he committed a serious offence by claiming that (unfair) catch which constitutes unfair play and a level-three offence of ICC code of conduct (offensive and penalties). Therefore, the Pakistani captain shall be banned for five one-day internationals,'' Procter said.
``Latif has the right to appeal against the verdict.''
Latif caught Bangladeshi batsman Alok Kapali off pacer Yasir Ali on the third day (Friday) of the third Test against Bangladesh in Multan but television replays showed he dropped the ball while tumbling on the ground. The Bangladesh team lodged the official complaint with Proctor on Saturday.
Meanwhile Inzamam-ul-Haq has been appointed Pakistan captain for the five-match one-day series which starts in Multan tomorrow.
The Pakistan team for the first one-day international: Inzamam-ul-Haq (captain), Imran Nazir, Mohammad Hafeez, Yousuf Youhana, Yasir Hameed, Abdul Razzaq, Shoaib Malik, Kamran Akmal, Junaid Zia, Umar Gul, Shabbir Ahmed.
