South African veteran David Miller has been reprimanded after a Level one breach of ICC’s Code of Conduct during the Super Eight clash against England in the ongoing Men’s T20 World Cup. The left-handed batter has been handed a demerit point, which is also his first in the last 24 months.

The Proteas batter was found guilty of violating Article 2.8 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which states "showing dissent at an Umpire's decision during an international match."

Miller showed dissent after the umpire signaled him out on a full toss from Sam Curran. The batter felt the elevation of the full toss was above waist height and should’ve been called a no-ball. The southpaw seemed displeased with the umpire’s decision and gestured for a DRS where it could not have been taken. 

Henceforth, Miller received a demerit point to his disciplinary record, proposed by match referee Jeff Crowe. Since he accepted it there was no official hearing. 

Talk about the match, South Africa edged past England in the encounter, winning by seven runs to claim four points and top Group 2 in the Super Eight stage. The England unit will be locking horns against the United States of America on June 23 (IST) while the Proteas will be playing West Indies in Antigua on June 24 (IST).
