Eng vs Ind: KL Rahul penalized for 'showing objection at Umpire's decision'

For breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct on the third day of the fourth Test against England at The Oval, India opener KL Rahul was penalized 15% of his match fee. ''Rahul was judged to have violated Article 2.8 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which pertains to showing disagreement at an Umpire's decision during an International Match,'" ICC said in a statement.

The ICC also added one demerit point to Rahul's disciplinary record, despite the fact that it was his first offence in a 24-month period. The incident occurred in the 34th over of India's second innings on Saturday, when Rahul showed dissent on being adjudged caught behind the wicket following a DRS review.

"Rahul admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Chris Broad of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees and ratified by the ICC Cricket Operations department as per the COVID-19 interim playing regulations. There was no need for a formal hearing," ICC said. On-field umpires Richard Illingworth and Alex Wharf, third umpire Michael Gough and fourth official Mike Burns levelled the charges.

"Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 percent of a player's match fee, and one or two demerit points," ICC said. Meanwhile, in the match, Rohit Sharma and Cheteshwar Pujara's 153-run stand for the second wicket enabled India to get in a dominant position on Day 3 of the ongoing fourth Test.
