Munaf fined, Harbhajan warned for arguing with umpire

Munaf fined, Harbhajan warned for arguing with umpireVisakhaptnam: Mumbai Indians player Munaf Patel was today docked 25 per cent of his match fee and his captain Harbhajan Singh handed a warning for breach of IPL Code of Conduct for having a heated and prolonged argument with the umpires during their side`s match against Deccan Chargers here.

Deccan captain Kumar Sangakkara was clearly out off the bowling of Munaf in last night`s match with the ball hitting the off-stump but the field umpires thought it happened after ricocheting from Mumbai wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik.

An angry-looking Harbhajan and Munaf came rushing in and apparently asked the umpires why they did not refer the matter to the third umpire if they were not sure of the decision.

The umpires eventually made a referral to the third umpire who ruled Sangakkara out.

"Mumbai Indians player Munaf Patel was fined 25 per cent of his match fee and received an official warning and reprimand for breaching the DLF Indian Premier League Code of Conduct during his team`s match against Deccan Chargers in Vishakhapatnam on Monday night," IPL said in a release.

"Mumbai Indians captain Harbhajan Singh received an official warning and reprimand for breaching the DLF Indian Premier League (IPL) Code of Conduct during the same match," it added.


Both players admitted the Level 1 offence (Article 2.1.3) of showing dissent at an umpires decision and accepted their respective sanctions.

In the same match, Deccan Chargers pacer Dale Steyn also received an official warning and reprimand for the Level 1 offence (Article 2.1.6) of pointing and gesturing towards the pavilion after the dismissal of T Suman in the second over of the Mumbai Indians innings. Steyn admitted the offence and accepted the sanction.

All of the three cases were dealt with by Match Referee Graeme La Brooy in accordance with the IPL Code of Conduct and being Level 1 breaches, his decision in each case is final and binding.

The only thing which I don`t support in this matter is Harbhajan`s & Munaf`s way of talking to the umpires, i.e lifting their fingers. Else they are all right. What was the problem with the umpires in refering that matter to the third umpires? If cricketers goes on adjusting with the umpires in the fear of punishments or as a show of atiquette then one day in future these umpires will become one kind of vampires and they will kill the spirit and dignity of the game.They did the correct thing of not coming out from the path of truth in the fear of punishment. Why ICC doesn`t erect a system which will take action against umpires for unfair decisions?
