Sri Lanka's fast bowler Farveez Maharoof was "severely reprimanded" for breaching the International Cricket Council (ICC)'s Code of Conduct during a match against West Indies in the one-day triangular series here Tuesday.
"ICC match referee Mike Procter found Maharoof guilty for breaching Clause 1.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct - excessive appealing in the course of play in the above match - after a hearing at Rangiri Stadium in Dambulla yesterday (Tuesday)," said an ICC statement.
Reports about Maharoof's behaviour were made by on-field umpires Simon Taufel of Australia, Sri Lanka's Asoka De Silva and Peter Manuel, the third umpire. Also in attendance at the hearing were Sri Lanka captain Marvan Atapattu and manager Michael Tissera.
"Maharoof pleaded guilty to the charge of celebrating the dismissal before the umpire had made his decision and of not turning around and appealing to the umpire - also known as excessive appealing under Clause 1.5," said the statement.
"Maharoof received a severe reprimand for the incident which took place in the seventh over in the Sri Lanka's bowling innings."
A Level 1 breach of the code carries a penalty of a severe reprimand and a fine of 50 percent of the player's match fee.
