    Lee let off lightly

    The ICC Code of Conduct is explicit (in clause I2)
    For the purposes of determining the penalty to be imposed, the Adjudicator must regard a repeat of any offence within 12 months of such offence as an offence at the next level above that particular offence. For instance, any repeat of a Level 1 offence within 12 months of such offence would be regarded as a Level 2 offence for the purposes of calculating the penalty to be imposed.
    While I question the relevance of a player's past record in being hauled up, I find that the 25% fine that Brett Lee has copped for 'not appealing', i.e. he celebrated the dismissal before the umpire made up his mind (Sehwag was found guilty in the Caribbean), is contrary to what the code of conduct says.

    This is the second time that Brett Lee has been pulled up for a Level-1 offence, after being reprimanded in January. So why on earth hasn't Jeff Crowe gone by the rule book and upgraded Lee to a Level-2 offender?

    I too am confused at the outcome. Except I think it should have been 0% of his match fee. There was nothing in this! It was a beat up! Absolutely stupid. If authorities remain this "vigilant" there is going to be hearings after every test!
