The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has fined Islamabad United’s captain Shadab Khan and pacer Fazalhaq Farooqi, along with Multan Sultans’ batters Tim David and Shan Masood for breaching the code of conduct during the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Farooqi pleaded guilty to the charge and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Roshan Mahanama. The charge was levelled by on-field umpires Aleem Dar and Faisal Khan Afridi.
Islamabad’s captain Shadab Khan and Multan Sultans’ Shan Masood and Tim David were also fined 10 per cent of their match fees for breaching a Level 1 offence of the PSL Code of Conduct in separate incidents during their side’s match in the PSL 8 on Tuesday.
“All three players were found to have violated Article 2.8 of the PSL Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to showing dissent at an Umpire’s decision during a match,” the PCB stated.
“In Shadab’s case, the incident happened in the fourth ball of 20th over of Multan Sultans’ batting, when a wide ball was given by the on-field umpire and upon that Shadab came running from the boundary line and expressed his disappointment at the decision.
“As regards to Shan, on the penultimate ball of 14th over of Multan Sultans batting, Shan expressed his disappointment after the umpire didn’t signal it one for the over for a short pitched ball.
