T20 World Cup 2021, Lahiru Kumara & Liton Das Kumar fined for breaching ICC Code of Conduct

In match 15 of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 between Sri Lanka & Bangladesh at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sri Lankan bowler Lahiru Kumara & Bangladesh’s batter Liton Das have been fined for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players & Player Support Personnel.

Lahiru Kumara was found guilty of breaching Article 2.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players & Player Support Personnel which deals with “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”.

On the other hand, Liton Das was found guilty of breaching Article 2.20 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players & Player Support Personnel which relates to “conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game”. The incident took place in the fifth over after the dismissal of batter Liton Kumar Das in the Bangladesh innings. After Kumara dismissed Liton Das, Lahiru Kumara walked towards him using actions & words which provoked an aggressive reaction from the batter.

After Lahiru Kumara provoked Liton das, he reacted aggressively & inappropriately that was against the spirit of cricket. Lahiru Kumara was fined 25% of his match fee & received one demerit point while Liton Das was fined 15% of his match fee & one demerit point.

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 & Das both pleaded guilty to the offences & accepted proposed sanctions, so there was no need for a formal hearing.

The charges were leveled by on-field umpires Joel Wilson & Adrian Holdstock, third umpire Michael Gough & fourth umpire Rod Tucker. Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of a fine of 50% of a player’s match fee & one or two demerit points.
