ICC reprimands Canada's Rizwan Cheema for breach of code

Mumbai, Mar 13 : Canada fast bowler Rizwan Cheema has received an official reprimand after breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during his side's 97-run defeat against New Zealand in a Group A match in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 at Wankhede Stadium here on Sunday.

Cheema pleaded guilty to a Level 1 offence and accepted the proposed sanction from Roshan Mahanama of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees. 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 Zealands 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 the on-field umpire Bruce Oxenford.

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.

The charge was brought by on-field umpires Oxenford and Shavir Tarapore, both from the Emirates International Panel of ICC Umpires, third umpire Steve Davis and fourth umpire Asoka de Silva, both from the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Umpires.

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