Karachi: Senior Test batsman Asad Shafiq has been fined 20 % of the match fee for a level 1 offence relating to showing dissent at an umpire’s decision yesterday during Sindh Quaid-e-Azam Trophy’s fixture against Northern at the UBL Sports Complex.
The 34-year-old showed obvious disappointment and verbally questioned the umpiring decision when he was given out LBW in the 15th over of Sindh’s second innings.
Asad was reported by on-field umpires Faisal Afridi and Saqib Khan at the end of the third day’s play for violating article 2.8 of the PCB Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel.
He accepted the charge and the sanction handed out by match referee Mohammad Anees hence there was no need for a formal hearing.
Yesterday, Sindh captain Sarfaraz Ahmed was fined 35 % of the match fee for using inappropriate language while Central Punjab batsman was fined for 20 % of the match fee.
