Shakib, Nurul fined for breach of conduct
Bangladesh T20I captain Shakib al Hasan and reserve wicketkeeper-batsman Nurul Hasan have been fined 25% of their match fees for breaching the ICC code of conduct in separate incidents during a crucial tie against host Sri Lanka in the Nidahas T20I tri-nation series Friday at R Premadasa Cricket Stadium in Colombo. The Bangladesh duo have also received one demerit point each for breaching Level 1 of the code. Left-arm all-rounder Shakib was found guilty of breaching article 2.1.1 of the code for players and player support personnel, which relates to "conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game", while Nurul was found guilty of violating article 2.1.2, which deals with "conduct that brings the game into disrepute". The occasion was the first either player received one demerit point since the system came into effect on September 22, 2016.

The incident involving Shakib happened in the 20th over of Bangladesh’s innings when he came to the edge of the boundary rope and gestured at his batsmen to come off the field while remonstrating against an umpiring decision. As regards Nurul, the reserve player argued and pointed finger at Sri Lanka stand-in captain Thisara Perera which led to unruly public behaviour after he was sent by the team onto the field of play to pass on a message to the two batsmen. Saturday morning, both Shakib and Nurul pleaded guilty to the offences and accepted the sanctions proposed by Chris Broad of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC match referees and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing.

Announcing his decision, Broad said: "Friday's incidents were disappointing as you don't want to see such player behaviour during any level of cricket. I understand that it was a tense and an edge-of-the-seat match with place in the final on the line, but the actions of the two players were unacceptable and cannot be condoned as they clearly went overboard. Had the fourth umpire not stopped Shakib and the fielders remonstrating, and then the on-field umpires not intervened between Nurul and Thisara, things could have become worse." The charges were levelled by on-field umpires Raveendra Wimalasiri and Ruchira Palliyaguruge, third umpire Ranmore Martinesz and fourth umpire Lyndon Hannibal. 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.
