West
Indies wicketkeeper-batter Nicholas Pooran, the hero of their two-wicket
victory over India in the second T20 International, has been fined 15 per cent
of his match fee for publicly criticising the umpires during the match in
Guyana.

Pooran’s was a Level 1 offence and he was found to have breached
Article 2.7 of the ICC Code of Conduct for players and player support
personnel, which relates to “public criticism in relation to an incident
occurring in an international match”.

Pooran admitted to the offence and accepted the sanction of a
reprimand that was proposed by match referee, Richie Richardson, and as such
there was no need for a formal hearing.

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.

Chasing 153, the West Indies’ rode Pooran’s 40-ball 67 to win the
match with seven balls to spare to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series. In
addition to this, one demerit point has also been added to Pooran’s
disciplinary record, for whom it was the first offence in a 24-month period.

Pooran criticised the umpires for having to use up a player review for a
decision which he thought was clearly not out. On-field umpires Leslie
Reifer and Nigel Duguid, third umpire Gregory Brathwaite and fourth official
Patrick Gustard levelled the charges. 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.

Chasing 153, the West Indies’ rode Pooran’s 40-ball 67 to win the
match with seven balls to spare to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.
