Shakib Al Hasan fined for conduct breach.

All-rounder Shakib Al Hasan fined 20% of his match for showing dissent at umpire decision.

The star all-rounder has been fined 20 percent of his match fee for showing dissent at the umpires during the match.

The controversial incident occurred during the first over of Khulna Titans innings. The bowler Abu Zayed Rahi appealed for LBW against Khulna opener Andre Fletcher, only to be refused by the umpire Khaled Mahmud. This led to some animated behavior from the bowler, and the Dhaka captain Shakib too joined the party moments later.

Bangladeshi all-rounder was found to have violated Article 2.1.4 of the BCB Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “using language or a gesture that is obscene, offensive or insulting during a Match”, according to BCB’s media release.

The charges against Shakib was leveled by on-field umpires Nadir Shah and Khalid Mahmud, third umpire Masudur Rahman and fourth umpire Mahfuzur Rahman Litu for his reaction to an overturned appeal off the fifth ball of the first over of the Titans’ innings bowled by Dynamites’ pacer Abu Zayed Rahi.

The bowler Rahi, who was also involved in the incident, survived this time, as he had said sorry to the umpires on the field and hence the umpires didn’t file any notice against him.

Moreover, the fine for the Level 1 breach, two (02) demerit points have been added to Shakib’s disciplinary record. The player admitted his offence and accepted the sanctions proposed by Match Referee ASM Roquibul Hassan and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing.

His team Dhaka Dynamites have sealed a spot in the final of Bangladesh Premier League by beating Khulna Titans in the Eliminator round.
