Yuvraj not guilty of breaching code of conduct

Colombo: Yuvraj Singh has been cleared of charges of showing dissent in the second One-day International cricket against Sri Lanka.

Yuvraj was charged under Level 1.3 of the code, which refers to showing dissent at an umpire"s decision.

But match referee Chris Broad cleared him of the charge Sunday after a hearing.

Yuvraj stayed at the crease after being given out lbw.

The incident was reported by on-field umpires Brian Jerling and Gamini Silva as well as third umpire Kumar Dharmasena.

'After reviewing video evidence of the incident, I am of the opinion that there was no conclusive evidence that Yuvraj showed dissent at the decision," Broad said.

'He did stay at the crease but the delay in departing was not excessive and I felt he showed a level of disappointment rather than dissent," he added.
