Shahzad reprimanded for breaching BCB Code of Conduct

Shahzad admits offence, accepts sanction

Update : 06 Feb 2022, 11:46 AM

Minister Group Dhaka opener Mohammad Shahzad has been given an official warning for breaching Level 1 of the Bangladesh Cricket Board Code of Conduct Friday.

The Afghanistan international was spotted smoking on the field of play and was found to be in breach of Article 2.20 of the BCB Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to "conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game."

In addition to this, one demerit point has been added to the disciplinary record of Shahzad.

The incident occurred when the start of the Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League Twenty20 2022 match between Dhaka and Comilla Victorians at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur was being delayed by rain.

The match was eventually called off because of inclement weather.

The player admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Neeyamur Rashid Rahul and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing.

On-field umpires Tanvir Ahmed and Mahfuzur Rahman, third umpire Gazi Sohel and fourth official Mozahid Swapam 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.
