JOHN’S, Antigua– Cricket West Indies confirmed today that Jamaica Scorpions opener Garth Garvey was fined for a breach of the Code of Conduct in the Digicel 4-Day Tournament during the first round of matches which ended on Sunday.

Garvey was reported by on-field umpires Nigel Duguid and Danesh Ramdhanie, along with reserve umpire Nandkumar Shivsankar, for a Level 1 breach of the Code of Conduct during the match between the Scorpions and Guyana Jaguars at the Guyana National Stadium.

Match referee Colin Stuart imposed a fine of 10 per cent of Garvey’s match fee, after he breached paragraph 1.2 of the Code of Conduct by showing dissent at the umpire’s decision by delaying his departure from the wicket, when he was adjudged lbw off the fourth delivery of the first over in the Scorpions’ first innings.

The player admitted to the offence and accepted the imposition of the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing.
