Hong Kong's Simandeep Singh has been fined 15 per cent of his match fee for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during his side’s 9th/10 play-off match against Papua New Guinea (PNG) in the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2018 at Old Hararians on Saturday.

In addition to the fine, one demerit point has been added to Singh’s disciplinary record.

Singh was found to have violated Article 2.1.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “showing dissent at an umpire’s decision during an international match”.

In addition to the fine, one demerit point has been added to Singh’s disciplinary record.

The incident happened in the 13th over of Hong Kong’s innings when Singh, after being adjudged leg before, showed his bat and pointed to it while still at the crease.

After the match, Singh admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee David Jukes. As such, there was no need for a formal hearing.

The charge was levelled by on-field umpires Langton Rusere and Sharfuddoula and third umpire Joel Wilson.

Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.
