Bonner found guilty of Level 1 offence

Jamaica Franchise’s Nkrumah Bonner has been fined 25 per cent of his match fee after pleading guilty to a Level 1 breach of the West Indies Cricket Board’s Code of Conduct during the NAGICO Super50 match against Trinidad & Tobago Red Force last Sunday, January 18, at Queen’s Park Oval.

Bonner was found to have breached Article 2.1.3 of the WICB Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support, which relates to “Showing dissent at an umpire’s decision during a Regional Match.”

The charge was brought by on-field umpires Nigel Duguid and Leslie Reifer Jr.

Bonner admitted the offence of throwing his bat to the ground after he was adjudged lbw by Duguid in the 31st over of the Jamaica Franchise innings and accepted the sanction proposed by WICB Match Referee Hayden Bruce. As such, there was no need for a formal hearing.

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.

Dwayne Bravo found guilty of Level 2 offence

Trinidad & Tobago Red Force’s Dwayne Bravo has been fined 50 per cent of his match fee after pleading guilty to a Level 2 breach of the West Indies Cricket Board’s Code of Conduct during the NAGICO Super50 match against Leeward Islands Hurricanes last Tuesday, January 20, at Queen’s Park Oval.

Bravo was found to have breached Article 2.2 of the WICB Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support, which relates to “Showing serious dissent at an umpire’s decision during a Regional Match”.

The charge was brought by on-field umpires Gregory Brathwaite and Nigel Duguid.

Bravo admitted the offence of showing serious dissent by making a gesture with his hands in an aggressive manner after a decision of “not-out” was given during the Hurricanes innings and accepted the sanction proposed by WICB Match Referee Michael Ragoonath. As such, there was no need for a formal hearing.

Level 2 breaches carry a minimum penalty of the imposition of a fine of between 50 and 100 per cent of the applicable match fee and/or up to two suspension points.

Barnwell found guilty of Level 1 offence

Guyana Jaguars’ Christopher Barnwell has been fined 10 per cent of his match fee after pleading guilty to a Level 1 breach of the West Indies Cricket Board’s Code of Conduct during the Grand Final of the NAGICO Super50 Tournament against Trinidad & Tobago Red Force on Sunday at Queen’s Park Oval.

The Jaguars’ captain was found to have breached Article 2.1.3 of the WICB Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel which relates to “Showing dissent at an umpire’s decision”.

The charge was brought by on-field umpires Gregory Brathwaite and Patrick Gustard, TV umpire Leslie Reifer Jr and 4th umpire Joel Wilson.

Barnwell admitted that upon his dismissal, he showed excessive and obvious disappointment with umpire Brathwaite’s decision and proceeded to shake his head while walking towards the players’ pavilion.

The Jaguars all-rounder accepted the sanction proposed by WICB Match Referee Hayden Bruce and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing.

The range of permissible sanctions if found guilty of a Level 1 breach is an official warning/reprimand and/or the imposition of a fine of up to 50 per cent of a player’s applicable match fee.
