The ICC Cricket Code of Conduct is a set of regulations that govern the behavior of players, coaches, and other participants in international cricket matches. The Code is designed to uphold the spirit of the game and to protect the integrity of the sport.

The Code is divided into two main sections:

  • Player and Player Support Personnel Regulations: These regulations apply to all players, coaches, and other support personnel involved in international cricket matches. They cover a wide range of conduct, including:
    • Conduct on the field: This includes physical and verbal abuse, intimidation, and any other behavior that could be considered unsportsmanlike.
    • Conduct off the field: This includes behavior that could bring the game of cricket into disrepute, such as doping, betting, and match-fixing.
  • Code of Conduct for Umpires and Match Referees: These regulations apply to all umpires and match referees who officiate in international cricket matches. They cover a wide range of issues, including:
    • Fair and impartial officiating: Umpires and match referees must be fair and impartial in their decision-making.
    • Proper communication: Umpires and match referees must communicate effectively with players and other officials.
    • Maintaining the integrity of the game: Umpires and match referees must take all necessary steps to maintain the integrity of the game.
