7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Bangladesh cap­tain Mashrafe Mor­taza and mid­dle-or­der bats­man Sab­bir Rah­man have been fined 20 per cent of their match fees, the In­ter­na­tional Cricket Coun­cil (ICC) has said. Eng­land cap­tain Jos But­tler has re­ceived an of­fi­cial rep­ri­mand for breach­ing Level 1 of the ICC Code of Con­duct dur­ing their sides’ se­cond ODI in Mir­pur on Sun­day. Both the Bangladesh play­ers were found to have breached the ICC Code of Con­duct re­lat­ing to “us­ing lan­guage, ac­tions or ges­tures which dis­par­age or which could pro­voke an ag­gres­sive re­ac­tion from a bats­man upon his/her dis­missal dur­ing an in­ter­na­tional match”. But­tler was found guilty of “us­ing lan­guage or a ges­ture that is ob­scene, of­fen­sive or in­sult­ing dur­ing an in­ter­na­tional match”. While this was the first of­fence for the ri­val cap­tains, Rah­man has been sanc­tioned for the se­cond time since the in­tro­duc­tion of the ICC’s re­vised code. All three play­ers ad­mit­ted to the of­fences.
