Asif Ali of Pakistan and Fareed Ahmad of Afghanistan have each received fines from the International Cricket Council (ICC) for breaking Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during an Asia Cup 2022 Super 4s match.
Asif will now pay 25% of their match fees as a penalty after they recognised their wrongdoing and accepted the punishments. Asif was removed by Fareed Khan in the 19th over, which led to a verbal argument.
It was a stressful situation since the aggressive actions of the players incited Afghan spectators, who allegedly attacked Pakistani fans by tearing apart chairs and hurling them at them.
Asif violated Article 2.6 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which forbids “using an obscene, abusive, or disrespectful gesture during an International Match,” according to the ICC Code of Conduct.
According to Article 2.1.12, “inappropriate physical contact with a Player, Player Support Personnel, Umpire, Match Referee or any other person during an International Match” is a violation that the Afghan pacer was judged to have committed.
He dodged the penalty and will now pay a percentage of his match money. Earlier yesterday, the International Cricket Council was anticipated to inflict a severe penalty on Pakistan’s middle-order hitter, including a ban for a few matches.
A violation of Article 2.1.12, which prohibits “inappropriate physical contact with a Player, Player Support Personnel, Umpire, Match Referee or any other person during an International Match,” was judged to have been committed by the Afghan pacer.
Earlier yesterday, Pakistan’s middle-order hitter was facing a severe penalty from the International Cricket Council, including a suspension for a number of games, but he evaded it and will now pay a percentage of his match money.
Ramiz Raja, the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), has raised worries about the issue and chosen to bring it up during the ICC meeting. Next month, both teams will participate in a T20 World Cup 2022 warm-up game.
Both The Men in Green and Sri Lanka have already qualified for the final of the Asia Cup 2022, therefore they will meet each other in today’s last S4s stage match as well as in the final on Sunday.a
