Kyle Jamieson has been fined 15 per cent of his match fee for “showing dissent at an umpire’s decision” during Tuesday’s One Day International against Bangladesh in Christchurch, the governing International Cricket Council said.
New Zealand pacer Kyle Jamieson had reacted angrily after the TV umpire ruled his return catch from Tamim Iqbal had not been taken cleanly. He admitted the offense and accepted the sanction, the ICC said in a statement.
Kyle Jamieson Didn’t Take Clean Low Return Catch Of Tamim Iqbal And Docked 1 Demerit Point For Reacting Angrily
Kyle Jamieson had one demerit point added to his disciplinary record. It was the 26-year old’s second offense in a 24-month duration. When a player reaches four or more demerit points within a two-year period, they are converted into suspension points which could result in a ban.
Kyle Jamieson took a low catch as Bangladesh captain Tamim Iqbal struck full delivery straight back to the bowler. The on-field umpires asked Tamim Iqbal, who was on 34 then, to wait and asked TV umpire Chris Gaffaney to judge if the catch was clean, with the soft-signal as not out.
The replays showcased that even though Kyle Jamieson had taken the catch cleanly; however, the issue was his follow-through. When the towering seamer fell forward, part of the ball held in his right hand rubbed the pitch before he got up again to celebrate.
Nevertheless, Kyle Jamieson was the most economical Kiwi bowler in that game as he finished with figures of 10-2-36-2 to restrict Bangladesh to 271. Later, stand-in captain Tom Latham struck a hundred to take the hosts home by five wickets.
Kyle Jamieson’s First Offense Was Against Pakistan In A Test
Meanwhile, the Auckland-born cricketer’s first offense arrived against Pakistan in a Test match at Mount Maunganui this year. He was docked one demerit point and 25 % of his match fee as he breached Article 2.9 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel.
It relates to throwing a ball at or near a player in an inappropriate and/or dangerous manner during an international match, according to an ICC statement released. Kyle Jamieson threw the ball in Faheem Ashraf’s direction at a high speed even as the batsman was away from the stumps and not intending to take a run.
In the 2nd ODI, Bangladesh posted 271 after Tamim Iqbal scored 78 and Mohammed Mithun scored an unbeaten quick 73. In reply, New Zealand’s Tom Latham scored an unbeaten 110 and Devon Conway scored 72 as the Kiwis won in the 49th over by 5 wickets.
In the 1st ODI, Bangladesh scored only 131 as Trent Boult returned with figures of 4/27. New Zealand achieved the target easily losing only 2 wickets in the 22nd over.
New Zealand took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series after beating Bangladesh by five wickets in the second one-dayer. The third game will be played on Friday at Wellington.
