Cricket West Indies (CWI) has confirmed that the Leeward Islands Hurricanes pair of Nkrumah Bonner and Terence Warde, as well Barbados Pride left-hander Jonathan Carter were all fined for breaches of the Code of Conduct during the fourth round of matches in the the regional 4-day championship which ended on Sunday.
CWI says all three players admitted to their offences and accepted the imposition of the proposed sanctions, so there was no need for formal hearings. Jamaican Bonner and Warde were reported by on-field umpires for Level 1 breaches of the Code of Conduct during the match between the Hurricanes and Jamaica Scorpions at Warner Park in Basseterre, St Kitts.
Bonner's breach was upgraded to Level 2, due to this being his second breach within a year, and match referee Stewart Rawlins imposed a fine of 50 % of the player's match fee. The player breached paragraph 1.2 of the Code of Conduct by showing dissent at an umpire's decision.
Rawlins however, imposed a fine of 10 % of Warde's match fee, after he similarly, breached paragraph 1.2 of the Code of Conduct. Carter was reported by on-field umpires Deighton Butler and Verdayne Smith, along with reserve umpire Roger Davis, for a Level 1 breach of the Code of Conduct during the match between the Pride and Windward Islands Volcanoes at the Arnos Vale Sports Complex in Kingstown, St Vincent.
A fine of 50 % was imposed on Carter, after the Pride player breached paragraph 1.3 of the Code of Conduct by using language that was obscene, offensive or insulting towards Volcanoes' off-spinner Shane Shillingford, when leaving the field following his dismissal in his side's second innings.
