Zampa reprimanded for breaching ICC’s code of conduct
Australia leg-spinner Adam Zampa has been reprimanded by the International Cricket Council (ICC) for an audible obscenity.
Adam Zampa has been reprimanded by ICC and he has also received one demerit point for breaching the code of conduct. He was guilty of Level 1 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct during the game against Windies on Thursday.
Article 2.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct is –
“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.”
It all happened during the 29th over of Windies innings when Zampa used an audible obscenity that was heard by the onfield umpires. The onfield umpires were Ruchira Palliyaguruge and Chris Gaffaney while the third umpire was Marais Erasmus and fourth umpire S Ravi levelled the charges against Zampa.
Zampa accepted the sanctions and admitted to his offence proposed by match referee Jeff Crowe. The leg-spinner finished with match figures of 1/58 in the game.
However, Australia had a terrific day in the field as they won the game by 15 runs to make it two wins in a row.
