‘Baby AB’ Dewald Brevis falls foul of ICC Code of Conduct

Star South African batsman Dewald Brevis has been found guilty of breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup semi-final playoff match against Sri Lanka.
Brevis 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.
The incident occurred in the seventh over of South Africa’s innings, when, after being dismissed LBW, Brevis raised his bat indicating he had hit the ball, and then shook his head and continuously looked at his bat as he walked back to the pavilion.
Dewald Brevis admitted the offence and accepted the sanction of a reprimand proposed by tournament referee Phil Whitticase and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing.

Dewald Brevis had 1 demerit point added to his disciplinary record

In addition to this, one demerit point has been added to his disciplinary record. It was Brevis’ first offence in a 24-month period.
On-field umpires Emmerson Carrington and Asif Yaqoob, third umpire Rashid Riaz and fourth umpire Rizwan Akram levelled the charges.
Sri Lanka won the match by 65 runs.
Brevis, 18, has been in scintillating form for the SA U19 side at the ongoing World Cup, scoring 65 against India, 104 against Uganda, 96 against Ireland, 97 against England and six against Sri Lanka in his five innings to date.
Brevis has been mentored by Proteas legend AB de Villiers for some years now.
South Africa are currently playing Bangladesh in the seventh-place playoff.
