Ireland player Josh Little has been fined 15 per cent of his match fee while his team-mates Mark Adair and Harry Tector have been reprimanded for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct in separate incidents during the third match of their ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League series against South Africa in Malahide on Friday.

Little was found to have breached Article 2.12 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “inappropriate physical contact with a Player, Player Support Personnel, Umpire, Match Referee or any other person (including a spectator) during an International Match.

In addition to this, one demerit point has been added to the disciplinary record of Little, for whom it was the second offence in a 24-month period, taking his cumulative demerit points to two.

The incident occurred in the 11th over of South Africa’s innings. After Little had bowled a delivery to Quinton de Kock, he followed through on his run up and made inappropriate physical contact with the batsman.

Adair and Tector were found to have breached Article 2.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “use of an audible obscenity during an International Match.”

Adair used abusive language during the 43rd over of South Africa’s innings, after being hit for a four by Janneman Malan. Tector used an audible obscenity in the 16th over of Ireland’s innings, when his appeal for a DRS review on being adjudged lbw was declined for being made late.

In addition to the official reprimands, one demerit point each has been added to the disciplinary records of Adair and Tector, both of whom did not have any previous offence in a 24-month period.

All three players admitted the offences and accepted the sanctions proposed by Match Referee Kevin Gallagher and ratified by the ICC Cricket Operations department as per the COVID-19 interim playing regulations. There was no need for formal hearings.

On-field umpires Paul Reynolds and Rolland Black, third umpire Mark Hawthorne and fourth official Alan Neill levelled the charges.

Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.
