Bangladesh’s all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and Afghanistan’s Dawlat Zadran was fined 50 per cent of their match fees on Sunday for breaching ICC Code of Conduct during their team’s qualifier match on Sunday ahead of the ICC World Twenty20 (T20) 2014 main draw.

In the ninth over of Bangladesh’s innings, Dawlat made physical contact with Shakib during his follow through. In return, Shakib reacted back and made physical contact with the bowler too.

Shakib was found guilty under Article 2.2.4 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel. Both the players pleaded guilty to Level 2 breaches of the ICC Code of Conduct.

According to ICC’s statement, “Both players were found to have breached Article 2.2.4 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to ‘inappropriate and deliberate physical contact between Players in the course of play during an International Match’.”

“The charges were laid by on-field umpires Richard Illingworth and Nigel Llong, third umpire Kumar Dharmasena and fourth umpire Richard Kettleborough, all from the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Umpires,” as stated by ICC’s official website.

Ranjan Madugalle of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees felt that there was no need for a full hearing.

Madugalle said, “Cricket is a non-contact sport and the teams were reminded at the pre-tournament briefings that intentional and avoidable physical contact of any form is unacceptableand these judgments reflect that.”

Earlier, Shakib was punished for making a lewd gesture on live television during the second one-dayer against Sri Lanka. He was banned from playing three One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and missed the final one-dayer against Sri Lanka and the first two matches of the Asia Cup 2014.
