Bravo fined over Tamim spat

  • Published at 07:13 pm September 18th, 2014

West Indies’ Darren Bravo was fined 30 percent of his match fee after found guilty in a verbal clash with Bangladesh’s Tamim Iqbal during the fourth day of their second Test match at Gros Islet. Bravo was found guilty of a Level 1 breach of the International Cricket Council code of conduct.

During the match, Bravo was warned on several occasions not to approach and verbally offend Tamim but the West Indian batsman repeatedly failed and did not pay attention to the on field umpire’s instructions.

It was learnt that during the fourth day when Tamim was batting Bravo, who was at the slips, walked across to the left hander and said, “Why don’t you pay the cricketer’s money”, indicating the West Indian cricketers who took part in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) to clear their pending salaries.

Tamim also replied back and said, “Don’t come to our country and beg for money,” as the umpire later came to stop the conversation.

Bravo disputed the offence and a formal hearing was then conducted by ICC Match Referee. The on-field umpires Stephen Davis, Richard Illingworth, third umpire Marais Erasmus and fourth umpire Peter Nero initially brought the charges against the West Indian batsman and later match referee Roshan  Mahanama issued a fine of 30 per cent of his match fee.

Tamim scored 62 off 181 balls before he was dismissed by left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn as the dashing opener also had some words exchanged with the tall spinner.
