Nottingham: England off-spinner Graeme Swann has been reprimanded for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct by kicking stumps in frustration and dislodging the bails during the second day of the second Test against India.
Swann was found to have breached Article 2.1.2 of the Code which relates to abuse of cricket equipment or clothing, ground equipment or fixtures and fittings during an international match. He has been reprimanded for a Level 1 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct.
The charge related to an incident at the end of the 80th over of the India innings when the England bowler kicked the stumps in frustration and dislodged the bails. He immediately apologised to the on-field umpires for his actions.
