Shaheen fined for throwing ball at Afif

Shaheen fined for throwing ball at Afif

Pakistan fast bowler Shaheen Afridi has been  fined 15 per cent of his match fees for throwing ball at Bangladesh batter  Afif Hossain in dangerous manner during the second T20 match at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Saturday. 

    The ball hit at his foot and caused an injury concern, for which he needed  a medical attention and the play was stopped for a while. Afif, however,  resumed batting later and scored 20 after feeling better. 

   Bangladesh lost the match by eight wickets to concede the three-match T20  series.

By doing so, Afridi has breached Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct.

   Afridi was found to have breached Code of Conduct for Players and Player  Support Personnel, which relates to "throwing a ball (or any other item of  cricket equipment such as a water bottle) at or near a Player, Player Support  Personnel, Umpire, Match Referee or any other third person in an  inappropriate and/or dangerous manner during an International Match," an ICC  press release stated. 

  In addition to this, one demerit point has been added to the disciplinary  record of Afridi, for whom it was the first offence in a 24-month period.

   The incident occurred in the third over of Bangladesh's innings, when  Afridi fielded the ball on his follow through and threw it at Afif Hossain, 
hitting him on the foot, when the batter was within the popping crease and  not intending to take a run.

   Afridi admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Neeyamur  Rashid of the Emirates ICC International Panel of Match Referees and ratified  by the ICC Cricket Operations department as per the Covid-19 interim playing  regulations. There was no need for a formal hearing.

   On-field umpires Gazi Sohel and Sohail Tanveer, third umpire Masudur  Rahman and fourth official Sharfudoulla Ibne Shahid levelled the charges.

  Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a  maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player's match fee, and one or two 
demerit points.
