Kevin O’Brien of Ireland has been fined 30 per cent of his match fee for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during his side’s Pool B fixture in ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 against the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the Woolloongabba, Brisbane on Wednesday.

Kevin O’Brien was found to have breached Article 2.1.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which states “Showing dissent at an Umpire’s decision during an International Match.

The incident took place on the first ball of the 48th over during 1st innings of the match, when O’Brien bowled a wide delivery and continued to question the umpire’s decision until bowling the next delivery.

After the conclusion of the match, O’Brien admitted about his offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee, Ranjan Madugalle of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees. As such, there was no need for a formal hearing.

The charge was put on by the on-field umpires Michael Gough and Nigel Llong, along with third umpire Kumar Dharmasena and fourth umpire Billy Bowden.

All the Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand and/or a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee.
