PCB Fines Imad Wasim for Breaching PSL’s Code of Conduct

Imad Wasim, the all-rounder for Karachi Kings, was fined 5% of his match fee for a level 1 violation of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) Code of Conduct after his team’s one-run loss against Islamabad United in the 21st match at the Gaddafi Stadium on Monday.

Imad was found to have broken Article 2.5 of the PSL Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, according to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

“Using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an angry reaction from a batter upon his or her dismissal during a PSL match,” according to the article.

Imad had Rahmanullah Gurbaz caught at mid-off by Babar Azam after the opener had hit the left-arm spinner for two sixes in three balls in the first over of the contest.

According to the statement, Imad admitted to the offence and acknowledged the authorization that was intended to be forced by Ranjan Madugalle; hence, there was no need for a proper hearing.

However, the on-field umpires Asif Yaqoob and Richard Illingworth, third umpire Rashid Riaz, and fourth umpire Nasir Hussain evened out the charges.

All Level 1 breaches that occur for the first time result in an official warning notice as well as the imposition of a fine of up to 25% of the relevant match salary.
