Tim Bresnan fined for misconduct

Posted by Admin On 11:15 AM

Tim Bresnan has been fined 7.5 per cent of his match fee for a Level 1 break of the ICC Code of behavior during England’s third ODI against India in Mohali. Bresnan was found to have breach Article 2.1.3 of the code which relate to “showing dissent at an umpire’s choice during an international match”, which also includes snatching the cap from the umpire.
The charge had been laid by the on-field umpires Billy Bowden and Sudhir Asnani and third umpire S. Ravi and related to an event at the end of the 18th over when the fast bowler quick his cap from Asnani after finishing his fifth over.
The England bowler pleaded not culpable to the charge. As such, a hearing took place at the end of the match which was attended by all the umpires, the player, England coach Andy Flower and England team manager Phil Neale.
The umpires deserve the greatest respect not only because they do a hard job in the middle but also because millions of budding and hopeful cricketers watch every move of the players. This makes all the international cricketers more accountable and answerable for their actions, chiefly in their transactions with the umpires in various match situations, said Roshan Mahanama of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees.
All Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official warning and a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee.
