Press Release

7th June 2019

Australian bowler Adam Zampa has been reprimanded for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during Match 10 at The ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019 between Australia and West Indies.

Zampa was found to have breached Article 2.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel <https://www.icc-cricket.com/about/cricket/rules-and-regulations/playing-conditions>, which relates to using audible obscenities in an international match. In addition to the formal warning, one demerit point has been added to Zampa’s disciplinary record

The incident occurred at the end of the 29th over of the West Indies innings when Zampa was heard using an audible obscenity by the umpires.

Zampa admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Jeff Crowe of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing.

On-field umpires Marais Erasmus and Chris Gaffaney, third umpire Ruchira Palliyaguruge and fourth official S Ravi levelled the charges.
