The left-handed opener was found to have breached Article 2.2.4 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel
Bangladesh batsman Tamim Iqbal was fined 50 per cent of his match fees for a Level 2 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct during the second day’s play in the second Test in Mirpur on Tuesday.
The left-handed opener was 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 charge had been laid by the on-field umpires Richard Illingworth and Bruce Oxenford.
The incident happened at the end of the 24th over in New Zealand’s first innings when Tamim, while moving to his new fielding position at mid-on, gave a shoulder nudge to Brendan McCullum.
Tamim accepted the charge without any protest and admitted that he was guilty of the offence.
All Level 2 breaches carry a minimum penalty of a minimum fine of 50 per cent of applicable Match Fee and/or up to two (2) Suspension Points.
