ICC tweaks Code of Conduct and DRS Umpire’s Call

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has introduced changes to its Code of Conduct for Players, Player Support Personnel, and the Decision Review System (DRS) Umpires Call interpretation.

There has been no change to the list of offences in the Code of Conduct, or the current penalty regime of warnings/fines/suspensions applicable to each offence, but players who have breached the code will now also accumulate Demerit Points, which can see repeat offenders suspended, an ICC statement said.

Demerit Points will remain with a player for two years, and all players will start with a zero balance from September 22 to coincide with the introduction of these changes.

The new DRS playing conditions relating to the Leg Before Wicket “Umpire’s Call” will also come into effect from September 22. The first match to be played under these regulations will be the One-Day International between South Africa and Ireland in Benoni, South Africa, on 25th September.
