Mahmudullah Riyad fined, Chandimal suspended

  • Print

Bangladesh T20I side stands in captain Mahmudullah Riyad was fined 20 percent of his match fee for 'minor over-rate' while Sri Lankan skipper Dinesh Chandimal received a two-match suspension due to a "serious over-rate offense" during the 3rd T20I of the Nidahas Trophy in Colombo on Saturday.

Apart from Mahmudullah, other members of the squad received 10 percent fines as they were found one over short as per Article 2.5.1, which related to the 'minor over-rate offenses'. Mahmudullah pleaded guilty to the offense and accepted the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing.

As he is found guilty of a serious over-rate offense, Chandimal will miss out his side's matches against India and Bangladesh on March 12 and 16 respectively, while each of his players have received a fine of 60 percent of their match fees, said an ICC release on Sunday.

Chris Broad of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees imposed the fine after Chandimal's side was ruled to be four overs short of their target when time allowances were taken into consideration. Chandimal pleaded not guilty to the offense, and, as such, Broad announced his decision following a hearing that took place on Sunday afternoon.

The hearing was attended by the match officials and the Sri Lanka cricket team management. The charges were leveled by on-field umpires Ranmore Martinez and Raveendra Wimalasiri, third umpire Lyndon Hannibal and fourth umpire Deepal Gunawardene.

In accordance with Article 2.5.2 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Players Support Personnel, which relates to serious over-rate offences, players are fined 10 per cent of their match fees for the first two overs and 20 per cent per additional over their side failed to bowl in the allotted time, while the captain receives two suspension points.
