The Indian batsman Rohit Sharma and the West Indies batsman Darren Bravo, both have been fined 15 percent of their respective match fees as both were involved in an on-field altercation day 4 and day 5 of the third Test match. Both of them were found guilty of breaching the ICC Code of Conduct, hence both have been fined 15% of their match fees.
Both the players were found breaching Level 1 Article 2.1.1 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which deals with “conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game.”
The on-field spat between the two started on day 4 but it came to notice on the final day’s play when the incident was aired on national television. The situation became bad to worse when Bravo even pushed Rohit Sharma which fumed him. Soon after that the Indian fielders too joined in and launched an attack on Bravo by cheering for the bowler loudly standing near to Bravo. This exerted pressure on Bravo and he was soon dismissed and guess who caught him, Rohit Sharma.
In the end, it was Rohit Sharma who had the last laugh as he took a smart catch to dismiss Darren Bravo.
Both the senior players could not keep their cool calm and let their emotions overflow on the field which resulted in both of them being fined. Bravo was the highest run scorer for his team as he scored 59 runs in the second innings before falling off Mohammed Shami.
Indian team soon finished the game and sealed the series with one match still to go. Now both the teams will fly to Queen’s park oval, part of Spain, Trinidad to take part in the last Test match of the series.
