Jonny Bairstow Receives Demerit Point Due to Level 1 Breach

His obscenity was picked up by the stump mic and was heard on TV

The ICC reprimanded Jonny Bairstow for ‘audible obscenity’ during the fifth T20I match against New Zealand in Auckland. His reaction after his dismissal in the seventh over of England’s innings was deemed to be ‘obscene’. It was picked up by the stump mic and heard on TV. Bairstow was found guilty of Level 1 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel. 

The batsman admitted the offence and humbly accepted the sanction. The charges were levelled by on-field umpires Wayne Knights and Chris Gaffaney, third umpire Christopher Brown and fourth umpire Shaun Haig.

'The England batsman was found to have violated Article 2.3 of the code, which relates to “use of an audible obscenity during an international match”’, the ICC said.

Meanwhile, England won the Super Over of the final T20I match. They will proceed to the Test series which will begin on November 21 at Mount Maunganui. The two teams share the same cricket odds (-108.7) of winning in the upcoming match. Check out the latest cricket odds on Betwala.
