United Arab Emirates skipper and their seasoned veteran, Khurram Khan has been fined as well as reprimanded for breaching the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Code of Conduct twice during their 80-run thrashing over arch-rivals Canada in ICC World Cup 2015 Qualifier.
ICC-Cricket.com reported that charges were made regarding an appeal for run-out. During the vociferous appeal he made, he had shown aggression towards the standing umpire, Enamul Hoque-Moni. It resulted in a Level 2 breach under Article 2.2.5 relating to Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel. He has been duly fined 50 per cent of his match fee for the first offence.
The second offence was in relation to Khurram disagreeing over that not out decision, and in disbelief shaking his head for a considerable length of time.
For this offence, he has been reprimanded. The player has also admitted that he was at mistake on both occasions and accepted the decisions taken by Dev Govindjee (ICC Regional Referees Panel).
Mr Govindjee said, “Mr Khan’s appeal and reaction to the umpire’s decision were clear breaches of the Code, as players are expected to respect the umpires and the umpires’ decisions at all times. Mr Khan apologised for his actions and hopefully this will serve as a reminder to all players of their responsibilities to conduct themselves within the spirit of the game.”
