West Indies batsman Darren Bravo is facing an official reprimand and a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee after breaching the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel.
The breach relates to “language or a gesture that is obscene, offensive or insulting during an International match”.
During West Indies’ 150 runs victory over Pakistan in a Pool B match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 in Christchurch, Bravo used an audible obscenity whilst batting.
He admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by David Boon of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees. As such, there was no need for a formal hearing. (WICB/CW)
