Irfan Pathan reprimanded for breach

Irfan Pathan has been reprimanded by the ICC for a breach of the Code of Conduct. Pathan, who took 2 for 75 in India's crushing loss in the second final of the VB Series, made an exuberant gesture, clapping and beaming Damien Martyn off when he dismissed him. Watching television replays, it was difficult to say if words were exchanged.
Clive Lloyd, the match referee, found Pathan guilty of a Level 1 offense, unfair play. Pathan was reported to the match referee by Rudi Koertzen and Daryl Harper, the on-field umpires, and also by Simon Taufel, the third umpire. The reprimand was made in a hearing shortly after play, an ICC media release informs. Lloyd said, "It's important that players and team officials at all times conduct themselves within the spirit of the game."
