Samiullah Shenwari of Afghanistan.
Samiullah Shenwari of Afghanistan has been reprimanded and warned of his future conduct for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct immediately during his country's Intercontinental Cup final match Scotland.

Shenwari admitted the charge of and accepted the sanction imposed by ICC Match Referee David Jukes without the need to convene a disciplinary hearing.

Through his admission, Shenwari was found to have breached Section 12 Article 2.1.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to excessive appealing during an international match.

Explaining his decision, Mr Jukes said: "Excitement and occasion aside, it is unfortunate that Mr Shenwari failed to follow the advice he was offered by both the on-field umpires and his captain. He has since been warned and reprimanded, and I sincerely hope that he has learned that this type of behavior is not acceptable and will not be tolerated."

On-field umpires Kumara Dharmasena, Buddhi Pradhan and third umpire Fidel Ja'ary brought the charge.

All Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of a reprimand and a warning and, as with other breaches at this level, the ICC Match Referee's decision is final and binding.
