SYLHET :: Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza and middle-order batsman Sabbir Rahman have both been fined 20 per cent of their match fees,as they were found to have breached Article 2.1.7 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players.
On the other hand, England captain Jos Buttler has received an official reprimand for breaching Article 2.1.4.
Earlier, in accordance with Article 7.3 of the revised Code, which came into effect on 22 September, in addition to the sanction imposed for their breaches, one demerit point each has been added to the disciplinary records of the three players, a press release from the ICC said on Monday.
The incident happened in the 28th over of England’s run-chase when Mashrafe and Sabbir overreacted after Bangladesh’s LBW review against Buttler was successful with the England captain responding by making inappropriate comments.
However, Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza said his team did not make any wrong during the 2nd ODI against England, and there is no reason to say sorry for that.
Mashrafe said this while answering to a journalist at a press conference held at Zohur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong on Tuesday.
Mashrafe said, "Our celebration went beyond the ICC Code of Conduct, and we were fined".
Mashrafe and middle-order batsman Sabbir Rahman were fined while England captain Jos Buttler was warned for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct in the match.
