Bangladesh ODI captain and opener Tamim Iqbal has been fined 15% of his match fee for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during the third and final ODI against Sri Lanka at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium Friday.

The series was part of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League.

As per an International Cricket Council media release Saturday, the veteran Bangladesh batsman was found to have breached Article 2.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “use of an audible obscenity during an international match.”

In addition to this, one demerit point has been added to the disciplinary record of Tamim, for whom it was the first offence in a 24-month period.

The incident occurred in the 10th over of Bangladesh’s innings Friday, when Tamim used inappropriate language after an unsuccessful review of his caught-behind dismissal.

Tamim admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by ICC match referee Neeyamur Rashid, and there was no need for a formal hearing.

“I was 100% sure that there was no connection between bat and ball. It was very unfortunate that the bat hit the ground at the same time the ball went past the bat so it was impossible for the umpire to overturn the decision. It could've been different if the on-field umpire hadn't given me out. I was 100% that I hadn't nicked it,” Tamim had said following Bangladesh’s 97-run defeat.

On-field umpires Sharfuddoula Ibne Shahid and Tanvir Ahmed, third umpire Gazi Sohel and fourth official Masudur Rahman levelled the charge.

Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50% of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.
