CWC Qualifiers: Sri Lanka’s Wanindu Hasaranga reprimanded for breaching ICC Code of Conduct – World News Network


Harare [Zimbabwe], July 2 (ANI): Sri Lanka bowler Wanindu Hasaranga has been reprimanded for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during the ICC World Cup Qualifier match against the Netherlands on Friday at Queen’s Sports Club in Bulawayo.
“Hasaranga was found to have breached Article 2.2 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to abuse of cricket equipment or clothing, ground equipment or fixtures and fittings during an International Match,” a statement issued by International Cricket Council read.
In addition to this, one demerit point has been added to Hasaranga’s disciplinary record, for whom it was the second offence in a 24-month period, taking his number of demerit points to two.
Hasaranga hit the boundary skirtings with his bat in an aggressive manner while returning to the pavilion after being dismissed.
Hasaranga, the tournament’s leading wicket-taker with 20 wickets, admitted the offence and agreed to the suggested sentence proposed by Shaid Wadvalla of the ICC International Panel of Match Referees. As a result, there was no need for a formal hearing to be held, the ICC said.
On-field umpires Martin Saggers and Greg Brathwaite, third umpire Jayaraman Madanagopal and fourth umpire Asif Yaqoob levelled the charge.
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.
Sri Lanka are currently sitting comfortably at the top of the Super Six table after their narrow win over Netherlands and have one foot in the 2023 World Cup later this year in India. (ANI)
