In addition to this, one demerit point has been added to Ecclestone’s disciplinary record, for whom it was the first offense in a 24-month period.

The incident occurred following Ecclestone’s dismissal in the 18th over of England’s innings, when on return to the pavilion, she knocked a chair over with her bat.

Ecclestone admitted the offense and accepted the sanction proposed by GS Lakshmi of the Emirates ICC International Panel of Match Referees, so there was no need for a formal hearing.
On-field umpires Lauren Agenbag and Eloise Sheridan, third umpire Claire Polosak and fourth umpire Vrinda Rathi leveled the charge.

Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.
Coming to the match, England lost the game by eight wickets. New Zealand won the bronze medal.

Batting first, England posted 110/9 in their first innings. Only Nat Sciver, the captain (27), Amy Jones (26) could post some decent contributions for the hosts. Hayley Jensen (3/24) was the best bowler for NZ.

NZ chased down the target with ease in 11.5 overs. Sophie Devine (51*) and Amelia Kerr (21*) took their team to victory.
