Bowler Naseem Shah, who is playing for Islamabad United in Pakistan Super League’s (PSL) season 9, was fined 10% of his match fee for breaching the code of conduct in a match against Multan Sultans on Sunday.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) issued a statement saying, Naseem was fined 10% of the match fee “for a level 1 breach of the PSL’s Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel”.

Naseem, 21, was charged with violating Article 2.2 which deals with the abuse of cricket equipment or clothing, ground equipment or fixtures and fittings.

“Naseem had kicked the stumps after the final ball of Multan Sultans’ innings,” added the statement.

Following the charges, the pacer pleaded guilty and accepted the sanctions proposed by match referee Roshan Mahanama, hence, a formal hearing was not needed.

The charge for violating the code of conduct was imposed by on-field umpires Ruchira Palliyaguruge and Muhammad Asif.

On the other hand, Multan Sultans were also fined for maintaining a slow over-rate in the same match.

Match referee Mahanama ruled Multan Sultans to be one over short of their target. The referee took into consideration time allowances before arriving at the decision.

As such, and in accordance with Article 2.22 of the PSL Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, each player was fined 10% of his match fee.
