Tamim, Imrul fined for breaching ICC Code of Conduct

Tamim, Imrul fined for breaching ICC Code of Conduct

Bangladesh batsmen Tamim Iqbal and Imrul Kayes have been fined 15 per cent of their match fee for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during the second day of the second Test against Sri Lanka in Colomboon Thursday.

Both players were found to have breached Article 2.1.1 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game.”

Tamim showed his bat to the umpire during an appeal for lbw, indicating that he had hit the ball. Imrul pointed to his thigh pad to indicate that the ball had hit him there when the fielding team was appealing for a catch.

After the match, both players admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Andy Pycroft of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees. As such, there was no need for a formal hearing.

The charge was laid by on-field umpires Aleem Dar and Sundaram Ravi, third umpire Marais Erasmus, and fourth umpire Ruchira Palliyaguruge.

All Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of a warning/reprimand and/or the imposition of a fine of up to 50 per cent of the applicable match fee.

In accordance with Article 7.3 of the new Code (effective 22 September 2016), in addition to the sanction imposed, one Demerit Point has been added to both players’ disciplinary records.

As of now, both players have one Demerit Point each. Pursuant to Article 7.6 of the Code, once Tamim or Imrul reach four or more Demerit Points within a twenty-four month period, their Demerit Points will be converted into at least two Suspension Points and thus will equate to a ban from their next match or matches. Two Suspension Points equate to a ban from one Test or two ODIs or two T20Is, whatever comes first for the player.
