West Indies fast bowler Jaden Seals was condemned on Sunday for violating the first phase of the ICC Code of Conduct on the opening day of the first Test against Pakistan in Kingston. The incident occurred after batsman Hassan Ali was dismissed in the 70th over of Pakistan’s first innings, when Seals used inappropriate language against Hasan. This can lead to aggressive response from the batsman.

Seals violates Article 2.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct, which refers to the use of vulgar language or offensive gestures during an international match against players and support staff, which may result in an aggressive response to a dismissed batsman. In addition, according to a statement issued by the ICC, a demerit point has been added to Seals’ disciplinary record. This is their first violation in 24 months.

Emirates ICC Elite Panel Match Referee Richie Richardson has framed the allegations. The seals received the accusation, so there was no need for a formal hearing. The ground umpires Gregory Brathwaite, Joel Wilson, Nigel Duguid and TV umpire Leslie Reefer have made the allegations. Violations of the first level include a minimum official condemnation or a 50 percent penalty on player match fees and a maximum penalty of one or two demerit points.
