A long and huge sporting event like the ICC World Cup always comes up many laughable, controversial or angry moments. All of these are accepted as long as any cricketer does not cross the pre-determined line. However, there have been times when cricketers have chosen to let go of rules and express their feelings.
But expressing something unlawfully comes at a price. Often, the players are fined or reprimanded. Though a slight cut from their hefty match fee might not mean much, it hampers the image of a player.
Let us have a look at 5 players who were fined or reprimanded in the ongoing edition of World Cup
5. Carlos Brathwaite – West Indies
Carlos Brathwaite will remember his 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup campaign for his one-man struggle against New Zealand. He also made the headlines for a wrong reason. He was fined 15% of his match fee for showing dissent at the umpire’s decision.
This happened when Brathwaite’s West Indies were facing India at Manchester. It was found that the big all-rounder had breached article 2.8 of the ICC Code of Conduct. Brathwaite expressed his anger at the umpire in the 42nd over when he thought the umpire gave a ‘wrongful’ wide.
