Haddin fined for breaching ICC Code of Conduct: ICC Twenty20 Release

Australian wicketkeeper-batsman Brad Haddin got fined 10 per cent of his applicable match fee for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during his side’s seven-wicket defeat against England in the final of the ICC World Twenty20 2010 at Kensington Oval on Sunday.

GB-AUS-077Haddin was charged with a Level 1 offence under article 2.1.3 of the code which relates to “showing dissent at an umpire’s decision during an international match”.

The right-hander pleaded guilty to the charge and as such, under the provisions of the code, the matter was determined by Ranjan Madugalle of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referee without the need for a full hearing. The match referee imposed a fine equivalent to 10 per cent of the player’s match fee.

The charge was brought by on-field umpires Billy Doctrove and Aleem Dar as well as third umpire Billy Bowden and fourth official Rudi Koertzen.

Offences included in Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct can range from an official reprimand up to 50 per cent of his or her match fee. The full text of the code can be found by clicking HERE.
