England‘s Ben Stokes was reprimanded by the International Cricket Council (ICC) for using foul language on the opening day of the third Test against India in Mohali. The incident took place when Stokes reacted to India’s celebrations following his dismissal and he got into a heated exchange with India’s Test skipper Virat Kohli that was heard by onfield umpires Marais Erasmus and Chris Gaffaney. Stokes was found to have used “language or a gesture that is obscene, offensive or insulting”. Live Cricket Scorecard: India vs England 3rd Test at Mohali

Stokes accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Ranjan Madugalle and there was no need for a formal hearing on the matter. This was Stokes’ second offence in less than a month after the all-rounder was fined 15 per cent of his match fee in Bangladesh for verbally engaging with batsman Sabbir Rahman. Stokes, who now has two demerit points under the new ICC code of conduct, will face suspension from one Test or two limited-overs internationals if he earns up to four points within a two-year period.

Talking about the opening day of the third Test, England slipped to 268 for 8 at stumps as they were tottering at 87 for 4 when Stokes and wicketkeeper-batsman, Jonny Bairstow, came to England’s rescue. However, Stokes was stumped off Ravindra Jadeja when he was at 29. His frustration showed as he reacted to India’s jubilation on getting him dismissed and hence faced the brunt of ICC’s decision.
