Sri Lanka’s Tillakaratne Dilshan and Mahela Jayawardene have been officially reprimanded for excessive appealing during their Champions Trophy match against New Zealand.

According to statement from the ICC, Dilshan and Jayawardene were found to have breached Article 2.1.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “excessive appealing during an international match”.

The charges were laid by on-field umpires Bruce Oxenford and Rod Tucker, as well as third umpire Ian Gould and fourth umpire Steve Davis.

Dilshan and Jayawardene were charged for excessive and prolonged appealing in a low-scoring match that New Zealand won by one-wicket.

Both the players pleaded guilty to a Level 1 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct and as such, under the provisions of the code, the matter was determined by match referee Andy Pycroft and so there was no requirement for a full hearing.

“Irrespective of the outcome of an umpire’s decision, players are not entitled to prolonged appeals as these can be construed as pressuring the umpires. Both the players accepted their mistake and apologised for their actions,” Pycroft said.

All Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand and a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee.(The Hindu)

    Umpires must be reprimanded for excessive imcompetence

    mail_guy Monday, 10 June 2013 06:20 AM

    Is there any levels for controlling players behavior on the ground like Kholi?

    Labby Monday, 10 June 2013 06:26 AM

    What about the dismissals which were turned down by the umpires? Had the umpires given their decisions correctly we would not have lost. Isn't it funny how reprimands are readily meted out to players for the slightest issue but no action is even thought of against howlers committed by umpires !! How's That ??

    They played really well..

    Porky Pig Monday, 10 June 2013 06:32 AM

    Of course, it is the white man's sport.

    Critic Roshan Monday, 10 June 2013 06:48 AM

    Now please tell me, what is the penalty for the mistakes done by the Umpariahs. Have they learn to give cricket rulings from our Local Judges?? or say "Mama LBW eka hariyata dekke neh"" (I could not see the LBW properly).

    vimukthi Monday, 10 June 2013 07:01 AM

    Tim Southee's LBW was not given by the umpire (Bruce Oxenberg)and gave 4 runs at a very crucial pint of the match. That decision changed the result I believe.. Where is the justice?

    Dudley Gunasena Monday, 10 June 2013 07:19 AM

    If the two players have pleaded guilty, who are we to criticise the judgement of the umpires? Some of us have this inferiority complex and always bring out 'racism' as an excuse for their under - performance. Shame! - Dudley

    You don't mean like aussies don't you because they don't stop from howling they go and bite.

    Cocohead Monday, 10 June 2013 07:26 AM

    Beet? They weren't making a vegetable salad

    Chris Monday, 10 June 2013 07:32 AM

    What about excessive bad decisions made by the umpires? If not for these two buffoons SL would have won the match. Ban these two incompetent umpires from the ICC.

    HeshK Monday, 10 June 2013 07:39 AM

    They should appeal.....

    John Monday, 10 June 2013 07:44 AM

    Sri Lanka has steadily lost its known 'spirit of the sport' status, specially due to a few seniors?!

    mcgee Monday, 10 June 2013 07:45 AM

    the two players involved have accepted their mistake and apologised for their actions.

    no need to go on and on here about this being another "white man/international" conspiracy against us lankans.

    makes us look weak and silly..

    Porky Pig Monday, 10 June 2013 05:21 AM

    If you can not beet them "howl" them out.

    ANTON Monday, 10 June 2013 05:34 AM

    POWER OF WHITE MEN IN THEIR HOME GROUND

    Village Boy Monday, 10 June 2013 05:38 AM

    If this situation was faced by Ausi or England team we would have imagined how they react. Though their action is officially not correct as far as Sri Lanka is concern Mahela and Dilshan are correct

    Suq Madique Monday, 10 June 2013 05:54 AM

    The umpires also should be reprimanded for poor umpiring decisions.

    KADMIN Monday, 10 June 2013 05:58 AM

    It's all about money and power. If SLC have money like BCCI, they can complain and protect their players, like BCCI did in AUS.
