Dubai [UAE], June 7 (ANI): Australia Leg-spinner Adam Zampa has been reprimanded by the ICC and has received one demerit point for a Level 1 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct during a World Cup match.
During Australia and West Indies' match on Thursday, in the 29th over, Zampa used an "audible obscenity" that was heard by the on-field umpires. This action was a breach of Article 2.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to using audible obscenities in an international match.
On-field umpires Marais Erasmus and Chris Gaffaney, third umpire Ruchira Palliyaguruge and fourth official S Ravi levelled the charges against the leg-spinner, who admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Jeff Crowe of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees.
Zampa returned with figures of 1-58 in a thrilling encounter at the Trent Bridge. Australia won by 15 runs to secure their second victory in as many matches in the World Cup so far. The Aaron Finch-led side will next take on India on June 9 at The Oval, London. (ANI)
