Debutant Indian cricketer Hardik Pandya is reprimanded by ICC for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during the first Twenty 20 International against Australia in Adelaide on Tuesday.

The player was found to have breached article 2.1.7 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “Using language, action or gesture which disparage or which could  provoke an aggressive  reaction from a batsman upon his/her dismissal during an International Match.”

Hardik conceded 19 runs in his first international over in which he bowled 11 balls. But, he bounced back in his second over when he took two consecutive wickets – Chris Lynn and Matthew Wade. But,  after dismissing Chris Lynn, he celebrated excessively in close proximity to the dismissed batsman, which could have provoked an aggressive reaction.

Following the match, which India won by 37 runs, Pandya admitted the offence and accepted the sanction given by Jeff Crowe of the Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees. As such, there was no need for a formal hearing.

The charges were leveled by on field on-field umpires Simon Fry and John Ward, third umpire Paul Wilson and fourth Gerard Abood.

For all first offences, Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand and a maximum penalty of 50 percent of a player’s match fee.
