Hasan Ali was found guilty of breaching Article 2.5 of the ICC of the Conduct for Players & Player Support Personnel which related to “using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batter upon his/her dismissal during an International Match”.
In addition to this one demerit point has been added to the disciplinary record of Hasan, for whom it was the first offense in a 24 month period. The incident took place in the 17th over of Bangladesh’s innings when Hasan gave an inappropriate sendoff to batter Nurul Hasan after dismissing him caught behind the wicket.
Meanwhile, the Bangladesh team has been fined 20% of the match fees for maintaining a slow over-rate in the match as the team was ruled to be one over short of the target after time allowances were taken into consideration. In accordance with Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players & Player Support personnel which relates to a minimum over-rate offenses, players are now fined 20% of their match fees for every over their team fails to bowl in the allotted time.
Hasan & Bangladesh Captain Mahmudullah admitted to the offenses & accepted the sanctions proposed by Neeyamur Rashid of the ICC International Panel of Match referees & ratified by the ICC Cricket Operations department as per the COVID-19 interim player regulations. There was no need for formal hearings as the duo accepted the offense.
The charges were leveled on them by on-field umpires Sharfudoulla Ibne Shahid & Masudur Rahman, third umpire Gazi Sohel & fourth Official Tanvir Ahmed. Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an Official reprimand & a maximum penalty of 50% of a player’s match fee & one or two demerit points.
