CPL 2019 : Evin Lewis and Ali Khan Were Found Breaching The Code Of Conduct In CPL

St Kitts & Nevis Pa­tri­ots open­er Evin Lewis and Trin­ba­go Knight Rid­ers pac­er Ali Khan have been heav­i­ly fined for breaching the code of conduct dur­ing their Hero Caribbean Pre­mier League at Warn­er Park, St Kitts, on Tues­day.

The incident happened dur­ing the Su­per Over where Lewis had an argument with Khan af­ter the third ball, which played to the bound­ary. It was because Lewis felt that Khan in­ten­tion­al­ly delayed him as he was try­ing make a sec­ond run, which clear­ly was not on in any event.

Moreover, Lewis was seen pushing Khan and having some un­pleas­antries talk with him. The TKR players and the umpires got involved when the pac­er re­fused to back down. TKR skip­per Kieron Pol­lard even­tu­al­ly had to intervene, pulling away Lewis, and calm­ing both play­ers down.

On Wednes­day, the CPL said both play­ers had been found in breach of ar­ti­cle 2.2.4 of the code of con­duct, which reg­u­lates in­ap­pro­pri­ate and de­lib­er­ate phys­i­cal con­tact be­tween play­ers dur­ing the course of play. Further, the on-field um­pires Leslie Reifer and Shaun George re­port­ed the in­ci­dent to the match ref­er­ee Si­mon Taufel.

When they ap­peared be­fore Taufel both play­ers plead­ed guilty to the charges and accepted the following sanctions imposed by Match Referee. Taufel even­tu­al­ly fined Lewis his en­tire match fee while Khan was given with 75% of his fee.

Despite losing a match over St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, Trinbago Knight Riders stood with eight points atop the six-team ta­ble with the Guyana Ama­zon War­riors. How­ev­er, the War­riors have a chance to take over TRKs in the further matches.
