Ashish Bagai of Canada and Carl Sandri of Italy have been reprimanded for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during their sides’ match on day ten of the ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier UAE 2013 in Dubai on Sunday.
Bagai and Sandri were found to have breached Article 2.1.8 of the ICC Code of Conduct, which relates to “conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game” and “bringing the game into disrepute”.
After the end of the play, both players admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Dev Govindjee. As such, there was no need for a formal hearing.
The charge relates to an incident in the 12th over of the Italy innings, after Sandri was given out and aggressively approached the bowler, following which Bagai approached and exchanged words with Sandri.
The charge was brought by on-field umpires Steve Davis and C.Shamsuddin, and reserve umpire Derek Walker.
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.
