South Africa Opener Tazmin Brits Reprimanded for Breaching ICC Code of Conduct

On Friday, South Africa opener Tazmin Brits received an official reprimand for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during the third women’s T20I against Ireland in Dublin, said the International Cricket Council (ICC).

Tazmin was found to have breached Article 2.8 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “showing dissent at an Umpire’s decision during an International Match.”

Notably, Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.

The incident occurred in the second over of South Africa’s innings in the third T20I against Ireland on Wednesday. On being adjudged caught behind for three, Tazmin first showed displeasure while staying on at the crease and then expressed her dissent as she walked past the umpires.
