Temba Bavuma was found to have breached Article 2.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “use of an audible obscenity during an International Match.”

In addition to this, one demerit point has been added to Bavuma’s disciplinary record for whom it was the first offence in a 24-month period.

The incident occurred in the sixth over of South Africa’s innings when Bavuma used an audible obscenity on being adjudged caught behind.

Temba Bavuma admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Kevin Gallagher of the ICC International Panel of Match Referees and ratified by the ICC Cricket Operations department as per the COVID-19 interim playing regulations.

There was no need for a formal hearing.

On-field umpires Alan Neill and Mark Hawthorne, third umpire Rolland Black and fourth official Paul Reynolds levelled the charge.

Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 percent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.

Unrest Latest: Sweden assures SA, investors to stay and rebuild

eThekwini Municipality Mayor, Mxolisi Kaunda, has reassured the Swedish government that the city is working to protect foreign investment and save jobs following the recent unrest in the city. 

Kaunda met with the ambassador of Sweden to South Africa, Hakan Juholt on Friday. 

eThekwini Municipality said in a statement that the meeting was aimed to reassure the Swedish government that the Municipality is working to protect foreign investment and to save jobs following the recent civil unrest. 

Kaunda said he was encouraged that “team Sweden”, led by Ambassador Juholt, had encouraged their partners and businesses to unite with South Africa to protect and rebuild communities impacted by last week’s widespread violent unrest, riots and looting. 

“Sweden has over 150 businesses operating in South Africa, the majority of which are in Durban,” Kaunda said.

“It is important for us as the leadership of the municipality to meet with Swedish representatives, not only to allay any fears they may have, but to outline how we plan to protect investments in the city, whether local or foreign investment,” Kaunda said.

Juholt reassured Kaunda that Swedish investors intended to stay in the city and help the government to rebuild the country.

“Sweden has a long history of standing by our friends through the struggle for freedom and equality. We are here to stay and continue to help rebuild South Africa through this struggle. Our businesses are not going anywhere, we are in it for the long haul, now and in the future.”
