Mubarak,Mashud fined for code of conduct breach
Dhaka, Feb 23 (UNI) Sri Lankan Jehan Mubarak and Bangladesh's Khaled Mashud have been fined for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during second ODI yesterday.
Mubarak has been fined 25 percent of his match fee. He was found guilty of showing dissent at an umpire's decision while Khaled Mashud will lose 20 per cent of his match fee for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct.
The decision to impose fine on these players was taken by ICC Match Referee Alan Hurst in a hearing after play concluded in Bogra.
Mubarak was found to have breached 1.3 of the ICC Code which relates to 'showing dissent at an umpire's decision by action or verbal abuse' while Mashud breached Rule C2 of the ICC Code at Level 1 which relates to 'conduct that brings the game into disrepute'.
''Disputing an umpire's decision shows a lack of respect for the umpire and there is no place for this type of behaviour in international cricket. The player has recognized the inappropriateness of his actions,'' said Mr Hurst.
