Damian Crowley has been reprimanded for a Level 1 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct during his side’s match against Oman.
Damian Crowley and Carl Sandri of Italy have been reprimanded for separate Level 1 breaches of the ICC Code of Conduct during their side’s match against Oman on day one of Pepsi ICC World Cricket League Division 4 in Singapore on Saturday.

Crowley and Sandri were found to have breached Article 2.1.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “showing dissent at an Umpire’s decision during an International Match.”

Both players admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Steve Bernard. As such, there was no need for a formal hearing.

The charge against Crowley relates to an incident in the 20th over of the Italy innings, when Crowley, the non-striker, hit his bat into the ground following the umpires’ decision that the batsman on strike was out.

The charge against Sandri relates to an incident in the 30th over, when Sandri obviously delayed leaving the wicket after being given out by the umpire.

The charge was brought by on-field umpires Akbar Ali Khan and Ahmad Shah Pakteen.

All Level 1 breaches for this offence carry a penalty of a warning/reprimand and/or the imposition of a fine up to 50 per cent of the applicable match fee.
