South African captain Themba Bavuma was reprimanded Friday for violating the ICC’s Level 1 Code of Conduct during the first T20I against Ireland in Malahide on Monday.

Bavuma was found to have violated Article 2.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which concerns “the use of audible obscenity during an international match”.

In addition to this, one penalty point was added to Bavuma’s disciplinary record, for which it was the first offense in a 24-month period.

The incident happened in South Africa’s sixth pitch over when Bavuma used sheer obscenity when he was found caught behind.

Bavuma acknowledged the violation and accepted the sanction proposed by Kevin Gallagher of the ICC’s International Match Judges and ratified by the ICC’s Cricket Operations Division under the interim COVID-19 rules of the game. There was no need for a formal hearing.

Judges Alan Neal and Mark Hawthorne, third referee Rollan Black and fourth referee Paul Reynolds tied the score.

Level 1 offenses incur a minimum official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 percent of the player’s royalties and one or two penalty points.
