Liton Das fined for breaching ICC code of conduct

Update : 19 Dec 2021, 10:05 PM

Bangladesh opener Liton Das was fined for breaching level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel.

Liton was found guilty of breaching Article 2.20 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “Conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game’ during Bangladesh’s Group B game against Sri Lanka in the Super 12 stage of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 at Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Sunday.

Liton has been fined 15 percent of his match fees for the offence.

Sri Lankan bowler Lahiru Kumara involved in the same incident was fined 15 percent of his match fees. Kumara was found guilty of breaching Article 2.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “Using language, actions or gestures which disparage, or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batter upon his/her dismissal during an International Match.”

The incident occurred in the fifth over of the Bangladesh innings after the dismissal of Liton.

Kumara after dismissing Liton, walked towards the batsman using actions and words. This had provoked an aggressive reaction from Liton.

Having been provoked by the bowler Kumara, Liton reacted aggressively and in a manner which was contrary to the spirit of cricket.

The two players have also been slammed with 1 demerit point each.

Javagal Srinath of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees imposed the sanctions, which were ratified by the ICC Cricket Operations department as per the COVID-19 interim playing regulations. Kumara and Das both pleaded guilty to the offences and accepted the proposed sanctions, so there was no need for a formal hearing.

The charges were levelled by on-field umpires Joel Wilson and Adrian Holdstock, 3rd umpire Michael Gough and 4th umpire Rod Tucker.

Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of a fine of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.

When a player reaches four or more Demerit Points within a 24-month period, they are converted into Suspension Points and a player is suspended. Two Suspension Points equate to a ban from one Test or two ODIs or two T20Is, whatever comes first for the player.

Demerit Points remain on a Player or Player Support Personnel’s disciplinary record for a period of twenty-four (24) months from their imposition following which they will be expunged.
