Player(s) were cautioned and a generally antagonistic atmosphere created. 3-4 Behaviour was unacceptable and fell significantly short of upholding the Spirit of Cricket with numerous breaches and / or player(s) reported. 1-2 Behaviour severely compromised the umpires ability to officiate the match and showed no regard to the Spirit of Cricket with constant breaches and multiple players reported.

A rating of 8 and 9 indicates that behaviour was very good and above the standard expected with no incidents or breaches.
