Australian paceman Mitchell Starc has been reprimanded by the International Cricket Council (ICC) after giving India batsman Murali Vijay a send-off in day two of the fourth Test at the SCG.
Starc was charged with committing a level one breach of the ICC code of conduct after he yelled in Vijay’s face after dismissing the opener for a duck.
The 24-year-old admitted to the breach of code in the incident, to which the ICC described as being an `exaggerated celebration’.
“The match officials felt that the player’s behaviour was not appropriate, and he was reminded of his responsibilities to extend respect to his opponent and to play within the spirit of the game at all times,” ICC
match referee Roshan Mahanama said.
India resumes on day four on 342-5, with captain Virat Kohli 140 not out and Wriddhiman Saha on 14.
