Saini found guilty of breaching the ICC Code of Conduct

India’s Nadeep Saini has received an official warning for breaching Level One of the ICC Code of Conduct during India’s first T20I game against the West Indies in Florida. Saini was found to have breached Article 2.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to using 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. The player admitted the offence 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 levelled the charges.
