Tazmin Brits: South African opener Tjameen Britts was reprimanded for breaching Level-1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during the third Women’s T20 International against Ireland in Dublin on Friday. Tjmin was found to have violated Article 2.8 of the ICC Code of Conduct on Supporting Players, which deals with protesting an umpire’s decision during an international match.
In addition, a demerit point has been added to his disciplinary record, for which it was the first offense in a period of 24 months. Specifically, Level 1 violations carry a reprimand, a fine of up to 50 percent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.
Event of this match
The incident happened in the second over of South Africa’s innings in the third T20 International against Ireland on Wednesday. Tajmin first showed his displeasure while at the crease and then expressed his dissatisfaction while going to the umpires. He pleaded guilty after the match ended and accepted the ban proposed by Graham McCree of the Emirates ICC International Panel of Match Referees, so there was no need for a formal hearing. Field umpires Roland Black, Azam Baig and third umpire Aidan Seaver made the allegation.
Chasing 105 in 13.5 overs, South Africa bowled Ireland out for 104 in 18.3 overs to win the T20I series 2-1. They will now play three ODIs against Ireland on 11, 14 and 17 June which is a part of the ICC Women’s Championship to determine qualification for the 2025 Women’s Cricket World Cup.
