Yuvraj not guilty: Broad

COLOMBO: Yuvraj Singh has been cleared of breaching level 1.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct which pertains to showing dissent at an umpiring decision.

After a hearing here on Sunday, Match Referee Chris Broad announced his verdict — not guilty.

Yuvraj had been reported to Broad by the on-field umpires Brian Jerling and Gamini Silva and third umpire Kumar Dharmasena.

The left-hander had stood his ground and pointed at his bat after being adjudged leg-before to paceman Nuwan Kulasekara in the second ODI on Saturday.

Television replays revealed that Yuvraj had edged the ball on to his pads. Broad said: “After viewing the video evidence of the incident, I am of the opinion that there was no concrete evidence that Yuvraj showed dissent at the decision.”— Special Correspondent
