She was fined 50 percent of her match fee for the level 2 offence and received three demerits points on her disciplinary record. She was found guilty of breaching article 2.8 of the ICC Code of Conduct for players and player Support Personnel, relating to “showing dissent at an umpire’s decision.
Harmanpreet Kaur was also given a separate Level 1 penalty that carried the fine of 25 percent of her match fee and one demerit point for public criticism of match officials. Following her dismissal, Kaur had lashed out at the umpiring while terming it “pathetic”.
As per ICC, Kaur admitted to the offences, “The Indian captain admitted the offences and agreed to the sanctions proposed by Akhtar Ahmed of the Emirates ICC International Panel Match Referees.
