Carlos Brathwaite fined for showing dissent over umpire's decision

Carlos Brathwaite has been fined 15% of his match fee for protesting an umpire's decision during his team's World Cup defeat to India that knocked them out of the tournament.

Brathwaite's actions have been adjudged to be in violation article 2.8 of the International Cricket Council's code of conduct.

The incident occurred during the 42nd over of the India innings when the umpire gave a wide off Brathwaite's delivery to Hardik Pandya even though the batsman had shuffled inside the line to pull.

The all-rounder has received a demerit point for his expression of dissent adding on to the demerit point he had copped earlier in the tournament in the game against England.

More demerit points during the 24-month period could lead to a ban for Brathwaite.

He refused to appeal against the sanction and hence there shall be no need for a formal hearing.

Such level-one breaches have a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 percent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.
