Cape Town - South Africa 'A' players, Tabraiz Shamsi and Qaasim Adams, were charged with breaching the ICC's Code of Conduct during their match against Australia's National Performance Squad (NPS) on Wednesday.

The pair were reported and charged with a Level 1 breach of Article 2.1.5 of the ICC's code - showing dissent at an umpire’s decision during an international match.

Match referee Steve Bernard considered the umpires’ written report and offered the players a reprimand, which both Shamsi and Adams accepted.

The incident for which Shamsi was charged occurred in the 36th over after a typically vociferous appeal from the spinner, the umpire shook his head and called over but the tweaker saw fit to continue to remonstrate with the official.

The Adams incident occurred while the left-hander was batting, after he was given out lbw off the bowling of Kyle Gardiner by umpire Adrian Holdstock, Adams threw back his head in disbelief and stood his ground for several seconds.

Neither player will receive any further sanction beyond the Match referee's reprimand and both will be available for the third place playoff against the NPS squad this weekend.
