Bangladesh skipper Tamim Iqbal has been fined 15 per cent of his match fee for breaching Level 1 of the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Code of Conduct during the third ODI against Sri Lanka in Dhaka on Friday, which the visitors won by 97 runs but lost the rubber 1-2.
“Tamim admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by ICC match referee Neeyamur Rashid and there was no need for a formal hearing. On-field umpires Sharfuddoula Ibne Shahid and Tanvir Ahmed, third umpire Gazi Sohel and fourth official Masudur Rahman levelled the charge,” the ICC said in a statement.
Notablt, the Bangladesh skipper breached Article 2.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “use of an audible obscenity during an International Match”.
The incident occurred in the 10th over of Bangladesh’s innings, when Iqbal used inappropriate language after an unsuccessful review of his caught-behind dismissal.
