Tanzim fined for breaching ICC Code of Conduct

Bangladesh player Tanzim Hasan Saqib has been fined 15 percent of his match fee for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during their ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 Group D match against Nepal at the Arnos Vale Ground, Kingstown in St. Vincent and the Grenadines on Tuesday.

According to a media release, Tanzim was found to have breached Article 2.12 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “inappropriate physical contact with a Player, Player Support Personnel, Umpire, Match Referee or any other person (including a spectator during an International Match.”

In addition to this, one demerit point has been added to Tanzim’s disciplinary record, for whom it was the first offence in a 24-month period.

The incident occurred at the end of the third over of Nepal’s innings, when Tanzim, after bowling a delivery, walked towards Nepal batter Rohit Paudel in an aggressive manner and made inappropriate physical contact.

Tanzim admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Richie Richardson of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees, so there was no need for a formal hearing.

On-field umpires Ahsan Raza and Sam Nogajski, third umpire Jayaraman Madanagopal and fourth umpire Kumar Dharmasena levelled the charge.

Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.
