Cricket Australia has charged CA High Performance coach Ryan Harris for breaching the code of conduct on Wednesday, where he sent a number of tweets regarding the controversial decision in the Big Bash League match between Brisbane Hear and Hobart Hurricanes. Cricket Australia came down heavily on him as well, handing him a fully suspended fine of AUD 3,000.
The 38-year-old, as a CA High-Performance Coach, has been penalised A$3,000 for voicing his disapproval regarding the field dismissal of Brisbane Heat batsman Alex Ross during the BBL clash against Hobart Hurricanes.
For his part, Ross has explained that he was not intending to block the throw but to avoid being hit by the ball.
Burns, meanwhile, who has represented Australia in 13 Tests and 6 ODIs thus far, was alleged to have used "language or a gesture that is obscene, offensive or insulting during a match" while sitting in the Heat dugout after the incident involving Ross. "You must always respect the umpires decision, but I wanted to clear the air and state my intentions in the run last night", he wrote on Twitter.
The incident in question is the weird obstructing the field dismissal of his teammate Alex Ross during Heat's chase. Harris, meanwhile, attracted the attention of his bosses by labelling the decision to declare Ross out as "very very embarrassing" and "absolutely shocking".
Australian opening batsmen Joe Burns has been found guilty for breaching the Cricket Australia's (CA) code of conduct, the news was confirmed as per the media release made by CA.
This was already Burns' second offence in the last 18 months, having last been fined 20 percent of his match fee for "abuse of cricket equipment or clothing, ground equipment or fixtures and fittings during a match".
