Daryl Mitchell fined 15 percent for breaching ICC Code of Conduct

Hamilton/UNI: New Zealand’s Daryl Mitchell was fined 15 percent of his match fee for use of an audible obscenity during the recently concluded Test against the West Indies.

"Mitchell was found to have breached Article 2.3 of the ICC code, which relates to “use of an audible obscenity during an international match”. In addition to this, one demerit point has been added to his disciplinary record," the ICC release said on Sunday.

The incident occurred in the 62nd over on Saturday when Mitchell used inappropriate language as Jason Holder was running between the wickets and in close proximity to him.

Jeff Crowe of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees imposed the sanction which was ratified by the ICC Cricket Operations department as per the COVID-19 interim playing regulations. Mitchell pleaded guilty to the offence and accepted the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing.

The charge was levelled by on-field umpires Chris Gaffaney, Wayne Knights and TV umpire Christopher Brown.

Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of a fine of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.
