India’s middle-order batsman Anmolpreet Singh has received an official reprimand for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup 2016 semi-final against Sri Lanka, which his side won by 97 runs in Mirpur on Tuesday.
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”.
The incident happened in the 42nd over of India’s innings when Anmolpreet, after being given out caught behind, showed dissent at the umpire’s decision by pointing to his sleeve and shaking his head.
Following the match, Anmolpreet admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Andy Pycroft 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 Gregory Brathwaite and Mick Martell, third umpire Adrian Holdstock and reserve umpire Ahsan Raza.
