Karachi Kings all-rounder Imad Wasim has been fined five percent of his match fee for a Level 1 breach of the PSL Code of Conduct during Karachi’s match against Islamabad in the ongoing Pakistan Super League at the Gaddafi Stadium on Monday.
Imad was found to have violated Article 2.5 of the PSL Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batter upon his/her dismissal during a PSL Match”.
The incident took place during the first over of the match after Imad had Rahmanullah Gurbaz caught by Babar Azam at mid-off after the opener had hit the left-arm spinner for two sixes in three balls.
Imad admitted the offence and accepted the sanction. The charges were levelled by on-field umpires Asif Yaqoob and Richard Illingworth, third umpire Rashid Riaz and fourth umpire Nasir Hussain.
All first-time offences of Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official warning and/or imposition of a fine of up to 25 per cent of the applicable match fee.
