Chennai: Ravichandran Ashwin has been fined 10 per cent of his match fee for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during the third day’s play on Sunday.
Ashwin was found to have breached Article 2.1.1 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel (the “Code”) which relates to “breach of the ICC’s Clothing and Equipment Regulations during an international match”.
“The player exceeded the permitted number of manufacturers’ logos when he walked onto the field with four logos on the straps of his batting pads,” an ICC media release said.
Ashwin accepted the Level 1 charge and the sanction proposed by Match Referee Chris Broad.
The charge against Ashwin was brought by on-field umpires Marais Erasmus and Kumar Dharmasena and third umpire Vineet Kulkarni.
