Players and/or Team Officials shall at all times conduct play within the spirit of the game as well as within the Laws of Cricket and the Captains are responsible at all times for ensuring that this is adhered to (Rule CC 5.1 deals with the application of and penalties for breach of this Rule).
5.7 Nothing in this Code of Conduct alters the onus on the Captain to ensure that the Spirit of the Game is adhered to as stated and defined in the preamble to the Laws of Cricket.Today Jeff Crowe let Ponting get away with a miniscule deduction in his match fee, despite the fact that as captain, it was Ricky Ponting's responsibility to act within the code of conduct and the laws & spirit of the game. If he felt that Ponting moved to the umpires and spoke to them and it meant that he had prompted a referral, why wasn't Ponting fined the full 50% and given an official reprimand?
