Nicholas Pooran was slapped with a 15% deduction from his match fee for violating the Level 1 ICC Code of Conduct while playing the second T20I against India. This breach pertained to Pooran's public critique, as outlined in Article 2.7 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, regarding an event that took place during an international game.

The said event transpired after assessing a leg before wicket decision during India's innings' 4th over. Pooran expressed dissatisfaction with the umpires over the necessity of invoking a player review for a verdict he felt was evidently not a dismissal.

Since Pooran recognized the violation and agreed to the disciplinary measures imposed by on-field umpires Leslie Reifer and Nigel Duguid, third umpire Gregory Brathwaite, fourth official Patrick Gustard, and suggested by match referee Richie Richardson, there was no requirement for a formal inquiry.


disciplinary record was further marked with a demerit point, his inaugural offence within a two-year duration. Offences falling under Level 1 can lead to a minimum penalty, a maximum 50% reduction in a player's match fee, and the addition of one or two demerit points to their record.

Pooran's significant batting impact was apparent in the West Indies' victory during the second T20I that gave them a 2-0 lead in the five-match series. With a target of 153 runs to win, the captain delivered a gutsy 40-ball 67, emerging to bat after losing two wickets in the opening over.

The left-handed batter's innings changed the complexion of the match in Guyana. Pooran's wicket started a collapse from the hosts as Chahal's third over saw West Indies lose three wickets.

Even though India retaliated strongly with their bowling strategy, West Indies' ninth-wicket partnership shared by Alzarri Joseph and Akeal Hossein clinched the game with an over left to spare.
