ICC fines Shakib, Wahab for altercation


Sakib1430670262Sports Desk: Bangladeshi all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and Pakistani pace bowler Wahab Riaz have been fined 30 percent of their match fees for breaching Level 1 of the ICC code of conduct during the final day of the drawn first Test between the sides.

The players were found to have breached Article 2.1.8 (a) of the code, which relates to “conduct contrary to the spirit of the game.” An ICC release stated that both admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Jeff Crowe.

“International cricketers should always remember that they are being watched and followed by millions and, therefore, need to always control their emotions and demonstrate respect,” Jeff Crowe said.

The incident happened in the 118th over of Bangladesh`s second innings when the duo halted play by arguing and pointing fingers at each other.
