"In determining the sanction, I took into account the mitigating factor of the wet ball which could have resulted in the bowler not being able to have complete control of the deliveries," said match referee Roshan Mahanama who handed out the reprimand.

Gayle smashed a World Cup record 215 in the West Indies' 73-run win on Tuesday.
