Summary

  • MANCHESTER, England (Reuters) – West Indies all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite has been fined 15% of his match fee for showing dissent at the umpire’s decision in their World Cup defeat by India, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said on Friday.
  • Brathwaite was found to have breached article 2.8 of the ICC Code of Conduct — which relates to showing dissent — during the match at Old Trafford on Thursday which Virat Kohli’s side won by 125 runs to eliminate the Caribbeans.
  • “The incident occurred in the 42nd over of India’s innings, when Brathwaite protested the umpire’s decision of declaring a wide off his bowling,” the ICC said in a statement.
  • Brathwaite admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Chris Broad, which also included the addition of one demerit point to his disciplinary record.
  • Two suspension points equate to a ban from one test or two short format internationals, whichever comes earlier.
