The West Indies star’s incident occurred during the second T20I vs. India match in Guyana.
West Indies’ Nicolas Poulain has been fined 15 percent of the match fee for violating the ICC Level 1 code of conduct in the second match of T20I against India. Poulenc has violated article 2.7 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Staff regarding public criticism of incidents in international matches.
The incident occurred after considering the LBW decision in the 4th over of the Indian innings. Poulin criticized the referees for having to exhaust the players’ evaluations for decisions he felt were clearly unforgivable.
Poulenc admitted infraction, imposed by ground officials Leslie Leifer and Nigel Dugaid, third official Gregory Brathwaite, fourth official Patrick Gustad and proposed by match official Richie Richardson. Accepting the sanctions, no formal hearing was required.
Also, minus points were added to Poulenc’s disciplinary record for the first violation in 24 months.
Level 1 infractions will have 50% of the player’s game fee deducted as the lowest penalty, the highest penalty, and will add 1 or his 2 negative points to the player’s balance sheet.
Poulin played a pivotal role with his racket as he won his second T20I in the West Indies, where he led 2–0 in a five-game series. Chasing 153 for the win, the captain hit 40-ball 67 and a strike in the first over after the West Indies lost two wickets.
India recovered the ball afterward, but the West Indies nine-wicket pair of Arzali Joseph and Akel Hossein went over-to-go to give their side the win.
