Dawlat Zadran was warned and fined 15 per cent of his match fee for breaching the ICC Conduct of Conduct during his side’s fourth One-Day International against Zimbabwe
Dawlat was charged with breaching Article 2.1.7 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batsman upon his/her dismissal during an International Match”.
The offence happened in the 47th over of Zimbabwe’s innings when Dawlat gave Zimbabwe batsman Graeme Cremer a clear send-off after having him caught by Mohammad Nabi by pointing and gesturing towards the pavillion.
Dawlat admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee David Jukes. As such, there was no need for a formal hearing.
The charges were laid by on-field umpires Vineet Kulkarni and Chettithody Shamshuddin, and third umpire Anil Chaudhary.
All first time Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand and a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee.
