PCB fined Naseem Shah for violating PSL code of conduct

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has fined Naseem Shah for violating the Pakistan Super League (PSL) code of conduct. It happened during a match of Islamabad United against the Multan Sultans at the Pindi Cricket Stadium.

Naseem Shah is currently playing for Islamabad United in the Pakistan Super League. According to a statement released by the PCB, Naseem was charged with violating Article 2.2. It prohibits the abuse of cricket equipment, clothes, ground equipment, or fixtures and fittings.

According to the PCB statement, Naseem had kicked the stumps after the final ball of the Multan Sultans’ innings. Hence, bowler Naseem Shah pleaded guilty to the accusation and accepted the penalties proposed by match referee Roshan Mahanama. Therefore, a formal hearing was unnecessary.

On-field umpires Ruchira Palliyaguruge and Muhammad Asif imposed the code of conduct violation charge following the suggestion of Roshan. Afterward, PCB fined Naseem Shah 10% of his match fee for violating the PSL code of conduct.

Meanwhile, Multan Sultans also faced punishment for slowly over-rate in the same match. Over rate is the average number of overs bowled by the fielding side in an hour of play.

Match referee Roshan Mahanama ruled that the Multan Sultans were one over short of their goal. He made this decision after taking into account the time allowed.
