U-19 World Cup match referee reprimands Tanmay

Kuala Lumpur, Feb 27 (IANS) Indian all-rounder Tanmay Srivsatav was reprimanded by Match Referee Chris Board after the player was found guilty of breaching the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Code of Conduct here Wednesday. The charge was related to an incident during the New Zealand innings when Srivastava pointed Corey Anderson towards the pavilion in an aggressive manner after clean bowling him for 70 in the 49th over. India went on to win the match and moved into the finals of the tournament.

Srivastava was reported by the umpires - on-field officials Peter Hartley and Marais Erasmus, and third umpire Enamul Haque-Moni - and charged under Level 1.6 of the Code of Conduct, which deals with “pointing or gesturing towards the pavilion in an aggressive manner by a bowler or other member of the fielding side upon the dismissal of a batsman”.

The Indian all-rounder pleaded guilty to the charge and was given an official reprimand by Broad.

“I understand that in the heat of the moment young players can get excited, especially when they have just dismissed the opposition’s highest scorer. But it is important for them to realise that gesturing a batsman towards the pavilion in this fashion is disrespectful and is contrary to the spirit of the game,” said Broad.
