In turn, Perera was sanctioned with a reprimand and a fine of 20% of his match fee after admitting to a breach of Article 2.1.8 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, whichrelates to “…Where the facts of the alleged incident are not adequately or clearly covered by any of the above offences, conduct that either : (a) is contrary to the spirit of the game; or (b) brings the game into disrepute.”

The charges were leveled by on-field umpires Simon Fry and Ruchira Palliyaguruge, third umpire Steve Davis and fourth umpire Raveendra Wimalasiri, all from the Emirates International Panel of ICC Umpires.

All Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand and a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee.
