Code of Conduct for Players and Team Officials
SCOPE AND APPLICATION
1.1 All Players and Team Officials are automatically bound by and required to comply with
all of the provisions of the Code of Conduct. Accordingly, by their participation (in the case of a Player) or
assistance in a Player's participation or other involvement (in the case of a Team Official) in a Match or IPL
Event, such Players or Team Officials shall be deemed to have agreed:
1.1.1 that it is their personal responsibility to familiarise themselves with all of
the requirements of the Code of Conduct, including what conduct constitutes an offence under the Code of Conduct;
1.1.2 to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of any Match Referee, Commissioner or
Appeal Commission convened under the Code for Conduct to hear and determine charges brought pursuant to the Code
of Conduct (and any appeals in relation thereto); and
1.1.3 not to bring any proceedings in any court or other forum that are inconsistent with the foregoing
submission to the jurisdiction of the Match Referee, Commissioner or Appeal Commission.
1.2 All Players and Team Officials shall continue to be bound by and required to comply with the Code of
Conduct until three (3) months after the termination of his or her contract or other arrangement with an IPL
Franchisee and BCCI shall continue to have jurisdiction over him/her under the Code of Conduct thereafter in respect
of matters relating to the League taking place prior to that point.
1.3 It is acknowledged that certain Players and Team Officials may also be subject to other rules of the relevant
Franchisee, the ICC and/or National Cricket Federations that govern discipline and/or conduct, and that the same
conduct of such Players and/or Team Officials may implicate not only the Code of Conduct but also such other
rules that may apply. For the avoidance of any doubt, Players and Team Officials acknowledge and agree that:
(a) the Code of Conduct is not intended to limit the responsibilities of any Player or Team Official under such
other rules; and (b) nothing in such other rules shall be capable of removing, superseding or amending in any way
the jurisdiction of the Match Referee, Commissioner or Appeal Commission to determine matters properly arising
pursuant to the Code of Conduct.
1.4 For the avoidance of any doubt all Umpires officiating in any Matches are automatically bound by and required
to comply with all of the provisions of the IPL Code of Conduct for Umpires.
