Parker receives reprimand and warning - Cricket News
Matthew Parker of Scotland.
Matthew Parker of Scotland has been reprimanded and warned of his future conduct for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during his country's Intercontinental Cup Final match against Afghanistan today.

Parker 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, Parker was found to have breached Section 12 Article 2.1.6 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to pointing or gesturing towards the pavilion by a bowler or a fielder during an International Match. 

"It is very unfortunate that Mr Parker acted in this way, and whilst I am certain that he was highly elated - following the fall of such an important wicket - he must take responsibility for his actions, and learn that this type of behaviour will not be tolerated in International Cricket." 

On-field umpires Kumara Dharmasena and Buddhi Pradhan 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
