Lehmann, however, was found to have breached article 2.1.7 of the ICC code of conduct covering players and support staff which relates to “public criticism or inappropriate comment” relating to players, match officials and support staff.
Former Australia batsman Lehmann was fined 20 per cent of his match fee, a penalty believed to amount to some AUS USD 3,000 (1,733 pounds) by match referee Roshan Mahanama.
“Whilst noting the context and nature of the comments made, showing mutual respect for one’s fellow professionals — including for coaches, players and match officials — is a cornerstone of how we play the game,” ICC chief executive David Richardson said.
