Pooran fined 15% for breaching ICC’s Code of Conduct

Pooran was fined 15% of the match fee for public criticism of an umpiring call

West Indies’ wicketkeeper-batter Nicholas Pooran has been fined 15% of his match fee for breaching the International Cricket Council (ICC)’s Code of Conduct during the second T20I in Guyana against India. 

“Pooran was found to have breached Article 2.7 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to public criticism in relation to an incident occurring in an international match,” read ICC’s statement after the clash. 

“Pooran admitted to the offence and accepted the sanction of a reprimand that was proposed by match referee, Richie Richardson, and as such there was no need for a formal hearing,” it further read. 

Not just that, but one demerit point too was added to Pooran’s disciplinary record, with it being the first offence for the southpaw in the last 24-month period. The wicketkeeper was fined 15% for criticising the umpires following an incident that occurred in the fourth over, when umpires did not use up a player review for a decision which he thought was clearly not out. 

“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.”
