West Indies all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite has been fined 15 percent of his match fees for showing dissent at the umpire’s decision in their 125-run World Cup defeat against India in Manchester.
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 comprehensively to knockout 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. He was handed one demerit point for a similar offence earlier in the ongoing tournament – against England on June 14 in Southampton.
Four or more demerit points within a 24-month period convert into suspension points.
Two suspension points equate to a ban from one Test match or two short format internationals, whichever comes earlier.
