Faf du Plessis, South Africas stand-in captain, could be suspended for a Test match after being charged by the ICC over an alleged ball-tampering offence. Jamal Crawford Jersey .Du Plessis has pleaded not guilty and is seeking legal advice to further contest the charge. A hearing before match referee Andy Pycroft will be held, but a date for the hearing has not yet been set by the ICC.The ICC confirmed in a statement on Friday that du Plessis had been charged for breaching Article 2.2.9 of the ICC Code of Conduct, which relates to changing the condition of the ball.The ICC statement said: The alleged incident happened on Tuesday morning when TV footage appeared to show du Plessis applying saliva and residue from a mint or sweet, an artificial substance, to the ball in an attempt to change its condition.Level 2 breaches of the Code of Conduct carry a penalty of a fine of 50-100% of the match fee and/or up to two suspension points, and three or four demerit points. Two suspension points equates to one Test match.The charge has been laid by ICC chief executive David Richardson. Cricket Australia did not make a complaint about the incident. Amile Jefferson Jersey . On Mar. 16, coming off a "fight of the year" performance at UFC 154 the previous November, St-Pierre faced Nick Diaz at UFC 158 in what would be his eighth defence of the welterweight title. Using his superior athleticism, St-Pierre cruised to a five round, unanimous decision victory setting up a much-anticipated title defence against number one contender Johny Hendricks. Jeff Teague Jersey . 10 Texas A&Ms offence dominated as usual against SMU. http:///...manja-bjelica-jersey . After the whistle, Thornton skated the length of the ice, pulled Orpik to the ice from behind and punched him in the face several times. Nico Rosberg eased Mercedes fears about its pace in Singapore by topping second practice, though teammate Lewis Hamiltons disjointed session ended prematurely with a hydraulics issue.It was in FP2 last year where Mercedes struggles first became apparent in a weekend which saw the team qualify nearly 1.5s off the pole and finish off the podium for the first time in the V6 era. The team came into the weekend hoping to have solved those issues and the evening session under the lights suggested progress has been made, with Rosbergs 1:44.152 a full 0.3s quicker than Kimi Raikkonen in the quickest Ferrari.Mercedes optimism will be tempered by Hamiltons session, however, with the reigning world champion aborting his first qualifying simulation and then enduring a messy series of laps of the ultra-soft tyres afterwards. He then returned to the pits, where the cover was taken off his engine, something Mercedes later confirmed was to investigate a hydraulic alert while on the circuit. The team decided the issue could not be resolved in the final 15 minutes and he did not return to the circuit. It means the world champion missed out on the long runs at the end of the session -- a significant blow in Singapore as FP2 is the only practice session which is considered relevant to the rest of the weekend as the full session takes place under floodlights.?Max Verstappen finished third as Red Bull struggled to live up to its favourites tag, though he and teammate Daniel Ricciardo both appeared to struggle to get the most out of their cars in the final sector. Sebastian Vettel could only manage fifth, though he clearly did not nail a perfect lap and finished 0.7s off teammate Raikkonen. Force Indias Nico Hulkenberg finished an impressive sixth for Force India, suggesting once aagain the team has made huge strides in development in recent months. Jimmy Butler Jersey. Hamilton finished seventh and only completed 20 laps.Carlos Sainz finished eighth for Toro Rosso at a circuit which could be the last chance for a strong result in 2016. Fernando Alonso finished ninth, two positions down on where McLaren expects to qualify tomorrow, though Friday practice is rarely an accurate predictor of every position on the grid. However, the Spaniard pulled up at Turn 16 at the end of the session with what he reported to be a gearbox issue, which could have ramifications for the Spaniard later in the weekend. Daniil Kvyat rounded off the top ten on a weekend he will hope ends his long and painful wait for points.Sergio Perez, who was complaining about issues during the session, had to settle for 11th ahead of Jenson Button and Esteban Gutierrez. Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas took the next two spaces and, though Williams often makes a big step forward on Saturday it seems to have a lot of work to do to catch Force India overnight. Kevin Magnussen and Valtteri Bottas finished 16th and 17th, ahead of Felipe Nasr, who earned the wrath of Ricciardo late in the session for holding him up after exiting the pit lane.Romain Grosjean finished 19th but lost his rear wing early in the session, spinning out of the last corner and tapping the barrier. He finished ahead of Marcus Ericsson and Pascal Wehrlein. Manors Esteban Ocon rounded off the timing screens a full three seconds down, though he was lucky to return his car to the garage in one piece after clouting the wall on two occasions at the end of his ultra-soft qualifying simulation.
