ICC Introduces Changes to Code of Conduct and DRS Umpire's Call

Friday, 23 September 2016 - 7:58


The International Cricket Council has introduced changes to the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel and the DRS Umpire's Call interpretation.

There has been no change to the list of offences in the Code of Conduct, or the current penalty regime of warnings/fines/suspensions applicable to each offence, but players who have breached the Code will now also accumulate Demerit Points, which can see repeat offenders suspended.

Demerit Points will remain with a player for two years, and all players will start with a zero balance from 22 September to coincide with the introduction of these changes.
