James Anderson fined for showing dissent

England's Anderson fined for dissent

Dubai, Sep 9 (UNI) England fast bowler James Anderson has been fined 15 per cent

of his match fee for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during the second

day of the fifth Test against India at The Oval.

Anderson was found to have breached Article 2.1.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct for

Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “showing dissent at an umpire’s

decision during an International Match”.

In addition to this, one demerit point has been added to the disciplinary record of the

fast bowler, for whom it was the first offence since the introduction of the revised Code in

September 2016, an ICC media statement on Sunday said.

The incident happened in the 29th over of India’s innings when Anderson snatched his

cap and jumper from umpire Kumar Dharmasena and then spoke to him in an aggressive

manner following an unsuccessful LBW review against Virat Kohli.

Anderson admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Andy Pycroft

of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees and, as such, there was no need for

a formal hearing.

The charges were levelled by on-field umpires Kumar Dharmasena and Joel Wilson,

third umpire Bruce Oxenford, all from the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Umpires, and

fourth umpire Tim Robinson.

Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty

of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.
