Five players reprimanded by ICC after heated final

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has reprimanded five players following the heated Under 19 World Cup final between India and Bangladesh at Potchefstroom in South Africa on Sunday.

The two sets of players were involved in an ugly altercation after Bangladesh beat India in a closely contested final by 3 wickets (DLS method) to claim their first ever ICC trophy at any level.

Bangladesh’s Mohammad Towhid Hridoy, Shamim Hossain and Rakibul Hasan while India’s Akash Singh and Ravi Bishnoi have been charged with violating Article 2.21 of the code. Bishnoi received a further charge of breaching Article 2.5.

“The match was hard-fought, as you would expect in an ICC U19 Cricket World Cup Final, but the elation and disappointment experienced by some players after the game spilled over into unedifying scenes that have no place in our sport. Respect is at the very heart of the spirit of cricket, and players are expected to show self-discipline, congratulate the opposition on their successes and enjoy the success of their own team,” Geoff Allardice, ICC General Manager Cricket said in a statement.
