Samuels warned

Jamaica and West Indies batsman Marlon Samuels has received an official warning and one demerit point after being found guilty of a level one breach of the ICC Code of conduct for players and player support personnel during his side’s ICC cricket World Cup qualifier win over Zimbabwe at the Harare Sports Club on Monday.

Samuels was found to have breached article 2.1.8 of the code, which relates to “abuse of cricket equipment or clothing, ground equipment or fixtures and fittings during an international match.”

Samuels was charged by on-field umpires Michael Gough and Simon Fry, third umpire Adrian Holdstock and fourth umpire Paul Wilson when, following his dismissal, he hit and damaged the 30-yard circle disk with his bat on his way to the dressing room after being dismissed for 86.

Samuels admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Graeme la Brooy and, as such, there was no need for a hearing.

Demerit points to remain on a player or player support personnel’s disciplinary record for a period of twenty-four months from their imposition following which they will be expunged

Level one breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 percent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.
