KFC Big Bash League statement: Mitchell Marsh

Perth Scorchers player Mitchell Marsh has been charged with a Level 2 offence under the Cricket Australia Code of Conduct following his side’s KFC BBL Finals match against the Sydney Sixers on January 30.

Marsh was charged by match referee Bob Stratford under Article 2.8 of the Code of Conduct for showing dissent at an umpire’s decision during a match.

Marsh accepted the charge and proposed sanction of a $5000 fine.

“I accept the fine handed down to me, my reaction to the umpire’s decision was unacceptable and not the example I want to be setting for any young cricketer,” Marsh said.

“I have complete respect for the umpires and the job they do. I’ll learn from this and look forward to Thursday night’s match.”
