Bravo, Sharma fined for mis­con­duct

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport Starts Here -

CAPE TOWN — Darren Bravo of the West Indies and In­dia’s Ro­hit Sharma have both been fined 15 per­cent of their re­spec­tive match fee for breach­ing the ICC Code of Con­duct dur­ing the fi­nal day’s play in the third Test at Gros Islet on Sun­day.

The play­ers were found to be in vi­o­la­tion of Level 1 Ar­ti­cle 2.1.1 of the ICC Code of Con­duct for Play­ers and Player Sup­port Per­son­nel, which re­lates to ‘con­duct that is con­trary to the spirit of the game.’

On the fi­nal morn­ing of the match, Bravo and Sharma ig­nored nu­mer­ous re­quests and in­struc­tions from the um­pires to stop ver­bally en­gag­ing with each other in a man­ner that was not in keep­ing with the spirit of the game.

After the con­clu­sion of the Test, both the play­ers ad­mit­ted the of­fences and ac­cepted the sanc­tions pro­posed by match ref­eree Ran­jan Madugalle. As such, there was no need for for­mal hear­ings.

The charges had been laid by the on-field um­pires Nigel Llong and Rod Tucker, as well as third um­pire Gre­gory Brath­waite and fourth um­pire Nigel Duguid.—Sport24.
