The Bangladesh cricketer has been fined 15 per cent of the match fee for breaching the Code of Conduct laid by the International Cricket Council (ICC). He has been charged Level 1 breach during the third ODI of the three-match series of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League.

The 32-year-old skipper is said to have breached Article 2.3 which relates to “use of an audible obscenity during an International Match”. It is noted that the incident occurred in the 10th over of Bangladesh innings during the third ODI on Friday when Tamim Iqbal used inappropriate language after an unsuccessful review of his caught-behind dismissal.

Notably, a demerit point has also been added to his disciplinary record, being it the first offence in a 24-month period.
