Brathwaite reprimanded for breaching code of conduct
Dubai, June 15 (IANS): West Indies all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite has received an official reprimand and received one demerit point for breaching the Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during the England-West Indies game in the ongoing World Cup at the Hampshire Bowl on Friday.
He was found to have breached Article 2.8 of the code of conduct for players and player support personnel, which relates to showing dissent to an umpire’s decision.
The incident occurred in the 43rd over of the West Indies innings when Brathwaite made his displeasure at being given out clear to the umpires.
Brathwaite admitted to the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee David Boon. There was no need for a formal hearing.
On-field umpires Sundaram Ravi and Kumar Dharmasena, third umpire Rodney Tucker and fourth official Paul Wilson levelled the charges.
Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.
