Denmark captain Michael Pedersen has been reprimanded after being found guilty of a Level 1 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct during his side’s match against Jersey on day five of Pepsi ICC World Cricket League Division 4 in Singapore on Wednesday.

Pedersen was found to have breached Article 2.1.4 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel (the Code), which relates to “using language or a gesture that is obscene, offensive or insulting during an International Match.”

The charge was laid by the on-field umpires Richura Palliyaguru and Clive Howard.  

In accordance with the provisions of the Code, a hearing was held and Mr. Pedersen was found guilty by the tournament referee Steve Bernard.

Explaining his decision, Mr Bernard said: “It is the responsibility of all players and more so the captain to act in the spirit of the game and respect others on and off the field of play.  I am sure that Mr Pedersen is very disappointed by his actions, and I hope that we will not see such behaviour from him or any player in the future.”

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.
