Rizwan Cheema reprimanded


The charge relates to conduct “contrary to the spirit of the game”

The Canada player pleaded guilty and accepted the sanction


MUMBAI: Canada fast bowler Rizwan Cheema received an official reprimand after breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during his team's 97-run loss to New Zealand in a Group A league match on Sunday, as per an ICC media release.

He was found to have breached 2.1.8 of the code which relates to conduct “contrary to the spirit of the game”. The incident took place on the fifth ball of New Zealand's 50th over when Cheema bowled a full toss above waist height.

As he had previously received a first and final warning on the fifth ball of the 40th over for a similar delivery, he was immediately ordered to be taken out of the attack by on-field umpire Bruce Oxenford. The over was completed by Harvir Baidwan. The charge was brought by on-field umpires Oxenford and Shavir Tarapore, third umpire Steve Davis and fourth umpire Asoka de Silva.

The Canada player pleaded guilty to a Level 1 offence and accepted the proposed sanction from Match Referee Roshan Mahanama.

The incident was deemed to be contrary to the spirit of the game as both deliveries were considered to be dangerous to the batsmen and under Law 42.6 (b) of the Laws of Cricket, it was considered as unfair play.

Offences included in Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct can range from an official reprimand up to 50 per cent of his or her match fee. — Special Correspondent
