Today, ICC charged Windies pacer Shannon Gabriel on his comments with a breach article 2.13 by the ICC Code of conduct. The charge was handed by match umpires to the match referee Jeff Crowe. Until the proceedings concluded, ICC will not comment any more regarding the topic.

England Captain Joe Root did not comment anything on this charge by ICC, he already left the topic down and said that which over happened in the field should be kept in the field. West Indies got a 2-1 victory in the Test Series, but in the final match, with the century knock of 122 from Root, England succeeds to beat West Indies by 232 runs.
