Sam Curran guilty of breaching ICC Code of Conduct

| @indiablooms | 01 Feb 2023, 12:55 pm

Dubai/UNI: England fast bowler Sam Curran has been fined 15 percent of his match fee for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during the second ODI against South Africa in Bloemfontein on January 29.

Curran was found to have breached Article 2.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to using any language, action or gesture towards a batter upon their dismissal which has the potential to provoke an aggressive reaction from the dismissed batter.

In addition to this, one demerit point has been added to Curran’s disciplinary record, for which it was the first offence in a 24-month period.

The incident occurred in the 28th over of South Africa’s innings when, after dismissing Temba Bavuma, Curran excessively celebrated towards and in close proximity to the dismissed batter, being an action which had the potential to provoke an aggressive reaction from Bavuma.

Curran admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Jeff Crowe of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees, so there was no need for a formal hearing.

On-field umpires Marais Erasmus and Adrian Holdstock, third umpire Bongani Jele and fourth umpire Allahudien Palekar levelled the charge.

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