Wanindu Hasaranga reprimanded for showing dissent during final ODI against Afghanistan

Wanindu Hasaranga, a star for Sri Lanka, was censured for violating the ICC Code of Conduct during the final ODI against Afghanistan. For breaking the Level 1 ICC Code of Conduct during the final Cricket World Cup Super League match of the series versus Afghanistan in Pallekele, Wanindu Hasaranga was given an official reprimand.

Wanindu Hasaranga has made violation of ICC Rules

A violation of Article 2.8 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which deals with “showing dissatisfaction at an Umpire’s decision during an International Match,” was determined to have been committed by the star all-rounder. He was given a single demerit point, his first in 24 months, and the maximum punishment of 50% of match fees.

Najibullah Zadran’s LBW judgement during the game was reversed during Hasaranga’s third over after being initially ruled out by the on-field umpire. The 25-year-old pointed at the massive screen, outraged at the choice.

A formal hearing was not necessary because Hasaranga acknowledged the violation and agreed to the punishment suggested by Ranjan Madugalle of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees. On-field umpires Nitin Menon and Lyndon Hannibal, third umpire Raveendra Wimalasari, and fourth umpire Ruchira Palliyaguruge all made the accusations. Sri Lanka accomplished a remarkable chase, pursuing a target of 314 set by Afghanistan. They levelled the series 1-1 with the victory and climbed one spot to ninth in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League.
