West Indies all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite was fined with 15 percent of his match fee for objecting the umpire’s decision during the ICC World Cup match against India.
Brathwaite was found to break Article 2.8 of the ICC code of conduct for players and player support personnel, which relate to showing a disagree to the umpire’s decision during an International match.
One more demerit point was added to Brathwaite in the league match against England on a similar offense, who now has two demerit points since the introduction of the revised code in September 2016.
This incident occurred at 42nd over of the match against India, when Brathwaite disagreed the umpire’s decision of wide in his bowling.
However, Brathwaite accepts his fine made by the Chris Board of the ICC elite panel of ICC match referees.
On-field umpires Richard Kettleborough and Richard Illingworth, third umpire Michael Gough and fourth official Aleem Dar leveled the charges.
Level1 charges carry minimum official reprimand and the maximum is the 50 percent of the match fee and one or more demerit points.
