John Mooney, Darren Sammy Fined By ICC
Following their World Cup fixture earlier in the day, West Indies’ all-rounder Darren Sammy and Ireland’s John Mooney have been fined 30 per cent of their match fees by the International Cricket Council (ICC).
Both the players have been charged with Level 1 Article 2.1.4 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “language or a gesture that is obscene, offensive or insulting during an International match.”
Sammy who scored a brilliant 89 today rescuing his team was heard on television screens using inappropriate words after playing a shot in the 34th over while Mooney was seen swearing several times when a fielder dropped a catch in the 45th over.
As both the players were found guilty of the offences, there was no requirement for a formal hearing.
Ireland defeated West Indies by four wickets chasing 304 at Nelson. This has been their third successful chase over 300 in World Cups.
