Two big names of the ongoing 2017 edition of the Bangladesh Premier League have been fined for breaching the Bangladesh Cricket’s Code of Conduct during the tournament. The names of the players are Comilla Victorians’ Hasan Ali, and the skipper of the Dhaka Dynamites, Shakib Al Hasan.
Hasan Ali was found guilty of breaching the level 1 offence, while Shakib committed the level 2 offense. Interestingly, both players took 5 wickets in the matches where they were found to have breached the BCB Code of Conduct.
Ali was found guilty of breaching the code of conduct when he showed Mosaddek Hossain the way to the dressing room after he dismissed him. And was charged with Article 2.1.7 of the BCB Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to ‘Using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batsman upon his dismissal during a Match’.
Shakib messes up too
On the other hand, the Dhaka Dynamites’ skipper Shakib Al Hasan was found guilty of breaching the code of conduct in the match against the Rangpur Riders. He had reportedly used a foul language after the umpire turned down his appeal for an lbw decision.
He breached Article 2.2.4 and was fined 50 per cent of his match fees by the match officials and was also given 3 demerit points for his actions.
