Dhaka Dynamites skipper Shakib Al Hasan and Comilla Victorians’ Pakistani recruit Hassan Ali were slapped with 50 percent and 25 percent of match fee respectively by the Bangladesh Cricket Board for two separate incidents of breaching the code of conduct.

Shakib was charged for verbally abusing umpire Ranmore Martinesz during the game against Comilla Victorians on Monday while Ali was charged for an improper gesture he aimed at Dhaka Dynamites' Mosaddek Hossain.

Three demerit points have also been added to Shakib's name. One more and he will be banned for a game.

“Ali was fined 25 percent of his match fees after he was found to have breached Article 2.1.7 of the BCB Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batsman upon his dismissal during a match,” said the statement from Bangladesh Cricket Board.

“Ali admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Match Referee Samiur Rahman and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing,” said the BCB statement.

Shakib too admitted the offence and accepted the penalties proposed by match referee Samiur Rahman and therefore there was no need for a formal hearing.
