Navdeep Saini Found Guilty Of Breaching The ICC Code of Conduct

Indian Fast Bowler Navdeep Saini was found to have breached Article 2.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to user actions or gestures which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batter upon their dismissal. He has also been handed one demerit point.

The incident occurred during the 4th over of the West Indies’ innings when Saini took the wicket of Nicholas Pooran.

According to the rules, when a player reaches four or more demerit points then they are converted to suspension points and the layer is banned. If they reach two demerit points which equate to ban of one Test or two ODI’s or two T20’s.

However, the player admitted the offense and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Jeff Crowe of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing.

On-field umpires Nigel Duguid and Gregory Braithwaite, third umpire Leslie Reifer and fourth official Patrick Gustard leveled the charges.
