CWG 2022: Katherine Brunt is “reprimanded” for violating the ICC Code of Conduct

The International Cricket Council has issued an official reprimand to the fast bowler for England Katherine Brut because she has breached Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct.

Katherine Brut, a fast bowler for England, received an official reprimand for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during England’s match against India in the semi-final of the women’s Twenty20 International competition at the Commonwealth Games on Saturday in Birmingham. It was determined that Brunt had violated Article 2.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which pertains to the use of an audible obscenity while participating in an International Match.

According to an official press statement issued by the International Criminal Court (ICC), “In addition to this, one demerit point has been added to Brunt’s disciplinary record, for whom it was the second offence in a period of twenty-four months, bringing her cumulative demerit points to two.”

Brunt used language that was not suitable after a catch that should have been made on India batter Deepti Sharma during the 17th over of India’s innings. The catch should have been made.

As a result of Brunt’s admission that the offence had been committed and his acceptance of the sentence that had been suggested by Shandre Fritz of the Emirates ICC International Panel of Match Referees, a formal hearing was not required.

The charge was brought under control by the on-field umpires Eloise Sheridan and Kim Cotton, as well as the third umpire Claire Polosak and the fourth umpire Shivani Mishra.

Infractions at the Level 1 level are subject to a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of fifty percent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points, depending on the severity of the infraction.

India advanced to the gold-medal match by claiming a victory against England in the first semi-final by a score of 4 runs.

The team that is led by Harmanpreet Kaur will now compete against Australia in the final of the Commonwealth Games, which will take place on Sunday with the match starting at 9:30 PM IST.
