Pakistan off-spinner Saeed Ajmal has been upbraided and cautioned for a Level one break of the International Cricket Council (ICCSa) Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel amid the fourth day’s play in the second cricket Test against Sri Lanka at the Sinhalese Sports Club (SSC) on Sunday. Beforehand he was accounted for suspected bowling activity.
Ajmal, who will in no time experience autonomous investigation of his bowling action after being accounted for in the opening Test, was accused of a Level 1 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct.
On day four, amid the 105th over of Sri Lanka’s second innings, Ajmal utilized indecent dialect which was grabbed by stump mouthpieces and heard by viewers far and wide.
Ajmal was found to have broken Article 2.1.4 of the Code, which identifies with “utilizing dialect or a signal that is disgusting, hostile or offending amid an International Match”. The charge identified with an incident after the 105th over of Sri Lanka’s second innings when he used foul languages, which was grabbed by the stump amplifier and heard on TV.
The charge was laid by the on-field umpires Ian Gould and Richard Illingworth, and third umpire Bruce Oxenford, all from the Emirates Elite Panel off ICC Umpires. All Level one breaks convey a base punishment of an authority censure and a most extreme punishment of 50 for every penny of a player’s match expense.
