West Indian batsman Darren Bravo, in an ICC investigation, has been found guilty of breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct. ICC found him guilty of verbally abusing the Bangladesh batsmen during the fourth day’s play in the second Test at St Lucia.

According to ICC’s Article 2.1.8 of the Code of Conduct code, which goes as: “…Where the facts of the alleged incident are not adequately or clearly covered by any of the above offences, conduct that either: (a) is contrary to the spirit of the game; or (b) brings the game into disrepute.”

ICC in their press release mentioned that Bravo was in fact warned on several occasions earlier by umpires not to offend the visiting batsman, but despite umpires repeated warning Bravo ignored them and vent on with his verbal abuse.

The Match Referee Roshan Mahanama, pressing charges, said: “The umpires felt that the player’s behaviour brought the game into disrepute and he was reminded of his responsibilities to extend respect at all times to both his opponent and to match officials.”

Subsequently, Darren Bravo refuted the charges and as result a formal hearing was scheduled by Sri Lankan match referee Roshan Mahanama, backing claims of on-field officials Steve Davis, Richard Illingworth who brought the initial charges along with Marais Erasmus (3rd umpire) and Peter Nero (4th umpire), to find Bravo guilty. Bravo has been handed a 30% fine on his match fee.
