Carlos Brathwaite, the West Indies all-rounder, has been reprimanded for showing dissent at an umpire’s decision during their World Cup encounter against England in Southampton on Friday. The all-rounder has received an official reprimand and one demerit point for breaching Level One of the ICC Code of Conduct.

The incident occurred during the 43rd over of the West Indies innings when Brathwaite made his displeasure clear to the umpire after he was given out caught behind off Jofra Archer’s bowling. Even though Ultra Edge showed there was a nick through to the ‘keeper, the batsmen didn’t look happy with the decision.

Brathwaite admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee David Boon and there was no need for a formal hearing. The charges were levelled by on-field umpires S Ravi and Kumar Dharmasena, third umpire Rodney Tucker and fourth official Paul Wilson.

West Indies were outclassed in the match as England chased down the target with eight wickets to spare after bundling them out for 212.
