Tamim fined for breaching Code of Conduct

Bangladesh skipper Tamim Iqbal was fined 15 percent of his match fee for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during the third and final one-day international against Sri Lanka in Dhaka on Friday.

Tamim was found to have breached article 2.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct for players and player support personnel, which relates to ‘use of an audible obscenity during an International Match.’

The incident took place in the 10th over of Bangladesh’s innings when Tamim used inappropriate language after an unsuccessful review of his caught-behind dismissal.

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

Tamim admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by ICC match referee Neeyamur Rashid and there was no need for a formal hearing.

Bangladesh lost the match by 97 runs but clinched the series 2-1 after winning the opening two matches of the series which gave them the taste of their maiden series victory over Sri Lanka across all formats.
