Tamim fined for ICC conduct breach
Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal has been fined 15% of his match fee for breaching Level 1 of the ICC code of conduct. Tamim has been found guilty of breaching the ICC code during day four of their first Test match against Australia in Mirpur’s Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on Wednesday. The Tigers won the game by 20 runs to mark their maiden victory in the format against Australia. Tamim was found guilty of debating with the on-field umpires while the Australian batsmen were changing their gloves regularly. Shortly after, he approached wicketkeeper-batsman Matthew Wade and gestured towards him to leave the field upon his dismissal.

The Bangladesh Test vice-captain admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Jeff Crowe of the ICC Elite Panel Match Referees. There was no need for a formal hearing as Tamim admitted to the offence. The charge against Tamim was levelled by umpires Aleem Dar and Nigel Llong and third umpire Ian Gould, all from the ICC Elite Panel Umpires, and fourth umpire Anisur Rahman. 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. The offence saw the Bangladesh batsman breach Article 2.1.1 of the ICC 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 the fine for his breach of Article 2.1.1, one demerit point has been added to Tamim’s disciplinary record. Since Tamim had come into the match with one demerit point against his name, he is now on two demerit points. Pursuant to Article 7.6 of the code, if Tamim reaches four or more demerit points, within a 24-month period, they will be converted into suspension points and he will be banned. Tamim had received the earlier demerit point during the second Test against Sri Lanka in Colombo on March 16, 2017.
