Organizers of the World Cup will crack down on bad player behavior by promising zero tolerance against unacceptable sleds during cricket & # 39; s showcase tournament.

Shannon Gabriel was banned by the ICC during the British tour of the West Indies for homophobic remarks to Joe Root and the leader of the governing body, Dave Richardson, promised to be severe against all World Cup offenders.

& # 39; Any personal or malicious comments will not be tolerated & # 39 ;, said Richardson on the Oval on Monday.

& # 39; One point that we have emphasized in all team meetings is maintaining a good behavioral standard. In the last twelve months, things have improved considerably and teams generally behave reasonably well. & # 39;

Richardson hopes that the World Cup, which starts on Thursday when England faces South Africa in the Oval, will offer the same atmosphere as the successful women's world tournament two years ago, which ended in a victory for England.

& # 39; The Women & # 39; s World Cup is a good example of the family atmosphere we want & # 39 ;, Richardson added.

& # 39; Everyone is welcome, male and female, young and old. There is no tolerance for racism or homophobia. & # 39;
