Shadab Khan faces a setback

KARACHI - Pakistan's new leg spin sensation Shadab Khan faces a setback in the 2nd T20 match against West Indies in Karachi yesterday.

Shadab Khan has been fined 20 per cent of his match fee and given one demerit point after being 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 West Indies in Karachi.

The Pakistan wrist spinner was found to have violated 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”.

In addition to the fine for his breach, one demerit point has been added to Shadab’s disciplinary record.

On Monday, in the ninth over of the Windies’ innings, Shadab after dismissing Chadwick Walton pointed his finger at the departing batsman and also made an inappropriate comment.
