Team India lost to England by 28 runs in the IND vs ENG first Test at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. Indian players had not even recovered from the pain of losing the match after taking the lead in the first innings when star pacer Jasprit Bumrah was reprimanded by the ICC.

Bumrah was found to have breached Article 2.12 of the ICC Code of Conduct, which deals with fighting a player or physically confronting the match referee. Apart from this, one demerit point has also been added to Bumrah's disciplinary record. This was his first crime in the last 24 months.

Actually, Ollie Pope and Jasprit Bumrah came face to face in the 81st over of England's second innings of IND vs ENG first Test series. During that over, Bumrah, after completing his follow-through, deliberately stepped in Ollie Pope’s way as the batter went for a run, leading to a collision and inappropriate physical contact.

After that, Bumrah pleaded guilty and accepted the punishment from Richie Richardson of the ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees, so there was no need for a formal hearing. On-field umpires Paul Reiffel and Chris Gaffaney, third umpire Marais Erasmus and fourth umpire Rohan Pandit had accused Bumrah. The lowest penalty for a Level 1 breach is a fine or an official reprimand, while the maximum penalty is 50 per cent of the player's match fee and one or two demerit points.

Notably, when a player reaches four or more negative points within a period of 24 months, he can be suspended. Two suspension points equates to a ban from one Test or two ODIs or two T20Is. Demerit Points will remain for a period of twenty-four months, after which they are removed.
