New Delhi:

England batsman Kevin Pietersen has been officially reprimanded after he was found guilty of breaching Article 2.1.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct during Saturday's T20 match against India at Kolkata.

Pietersen has been reprimanded for the Level 1 breach after on-field umpires Sudhir Asnani and S.Ravi, third umpire Vineet Kulkarni and fourth umpire K.Srinath laid the charge.

The batsman pleaded guilty to the charge after he was found showing dissent at his dismissal. Suresh Raina trapped him LBW in the match.

ICC match referee Roshan Mahanama said that players should be more aware of their on-field actions. "As an experienced cricketer, Kevin should know that when the umpire raises his finger, a player should leave the crease without showing his emotions no matter what he may think of the decision," he said and added that Pietersen was guilty of displaying excessive and obvious disappointment at the decision against him.
