ICC reprimands Wanindu

Published

Sri Lanka star Wanindu Hasaranga has been reprimanded for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct in the final ODI against Afghanistan.

Wanindu Hasaranga received the official reprimand for breaching the Level 1 ICC Code of Conduct during the final Cricket World Cup Super League match of the series against Afghanistan in Pallekele.

The star all-rounder was found guilty of breaching Article 2.8 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.” He received one demerit point, his first in a 24-month period, as well as a maximum penalty of 50% of match fees.

During the match, Najibullah Zadran’s LBW decision was overturned during Hasaranga’s third over after being given out by the on-field umpire initially. Frustrated at the decision, the 25-year-old pointed at the giant screen.

Hasaranga admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Ranjan Madugalle of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees, thus a formal hearing was not required.

The charges were levelled by on-field umpires Nitin Menon and Lyndon Hannibal, third umpire Raveendra Wimalasari and fourth umpire Ruchira Palliyaguruge.

Sri Lanka pulled off an incredible chase, hunting down down a target of 314 set by Afghanistan. With the win, they levelled the series 1-1 and also moved to ninth in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League.
