Imad fined for breaching PSL’s code of conduct


Karachi Kings all-rounder Imad Wasim has been fined 5% of his match fee for a level 1 breach of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) Code of Conduct during his side’s one-run defeat against Islamabad United in the 21st match at the Gaddafi Stadium on Monday.

According to a statement issued by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Imad was found to have vio-lated Article 2.5 of the PSL Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel.

The article relates to “using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batter upon his/her dis-missal during a PSL match”.

Imad admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed to be imposed by Ranjan Madugalle and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing, the statement read.

The charges were levelled by on-field umpires Asif Yaqoob and Richard Illingworth, third umpire Rashid Riaz and fourth umpire Nasir Hussain.

All first-time offences of Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official warning and/or imposition of a fine of up to 25 per cent of the ap-plicable match fee.—Agencies
