Four players get reprimand

Four players - Michael Pedersen and Amjad Khan of Denmark, and Amir Ali and Munis Ansari of Oman - have been reprimanded for separate Level 1 breaches of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel (The Code) during their sides' encounter on day four of Pepsi ICC World Cricket League Division 4 in Singapore on Tuesday.

The players admitted to the offences and accepted the sanctions proposed by match referee Steve Bernard. As such, there was no need for formal hearings. Denmark captain Pedersen was sanctioned over slow over rates.

Teammate Khan was found to be guilty of actions contrary to the spirit of the game.

The charge against Khan related to continuously swearing at the opposition.

Oman players Ali and Ansari were both found to have shown dissent at an umpire's decision during an international match.
