India opener Rohit Sharma has received an official reprimand for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during the fifth and final One-Day International against Australia in Sydney on Saturday.
 
The player was found to have breached Article 2.1.5 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”.
 
Sharma displayed dissent when he showed an obvious delay in leaving the crease after being given out caught behind off John Hastings when batting on 99.
 
Following the match, which India won by six wickets, Sharma admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Jeff Crowe of the Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees. As such, there was no need for a formal hearing.
 
The charge was levelled by on-field umpires Richard Kettleborough and Paul Wilson, third umpire John Ward and fourth official Gerard Abood.
 
For all first offences, 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.
