ICC fined Mahmudullah for misbehaving on the second ODI against New Zealand. Kiwi pacer Trent Boult also fined for a different reason as well, on the same match.
Reason for finning Mahmudullah
The reason for finning Mahmudullah is for disobeying ICC code of act 2.2. As this right-hander dependable batsman, Mahmudullah, when leaving the ground after got out during second ODI on Christchurch, hit on the picket fence with his bat. Though this batsman failed to hit the ball in the wicket but successfully strike on the poor fence.
Mahmudullah was found guilty of breaching Article 2.2 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “abuse of cricket equipment or clothing, ground equipment or fixtures and fittings during an international match,” ICC accused it as Level 1 crime fault and fined him 10% of his match fees with warning for committing this in the future.
Reason for finning Trent Boult
Kiwi pacer Trent Boult also fined ICC for calling name on the second match. Though this right-hander pacer picked 3 wickets in Napier but got a wicket in Christchurch as well. As Bangladesh was suffering from batting then he lost his temper to make the opponents weaker.
Using bad languages in an international match is another crime according to ICC code. So this Kiwi pacer is guilty under the article of 2.3 which deals with “use of an audible obscenity during an international match.” So this kiwi committed the crime for several times on the veil of typical sledding in the cricket. But ICC took it too seriously and fined him 15% of match fees with the warning as well.
Therefore, ICC fined Mahmudullah for misbehaving on the second ODI. Hope this experienced Bangladeshi batting all-rounder will be more careful about this type of unpleasant matter.
