Shadab was found guilty of a Level 1 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel during Monday’s Twenty20 International against the Windies in Karachi. He breached Article 2.1.7 of the code, which relates to “using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batsman upon his/her dismissal during an international match”.

The incident took place in the ninth over of the Windies’ innings when Shadab, after dismissing Chadwick Walton, pointed his finger at latter and also made an inappropriate comment. After the match, Shadab accepted his offense and also accepted the sanction proposed by Match Referee David Boon of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing.

Sanction on Khan was leveled by on-field umpires Shozab Raza and Ahmed Shahab, third umpire Ahsan Raza, as well as fourth umpire Khalid Mahmood. Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 percent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.
