Iftikhar fined for showing dissent

October 27, 2021

LAHORE: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa captain Iftikhar Ahmed was fined 20 percent of his match fee for a level 1 offence for showing dissent at an umpire’s decision during their first round Quaid-e-Azam Trophy match against Northern at the Gaddafi Stadium.

Iftikhar argued with the umpire when his appeal was turned down in the 122nd over of Northern’s innings. He was found to have violated Article 2.8 of the PCB Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel.

On-field umpires Rashid Riaz and Shozab Raza levelled the charge. The all-rounder accepted the sanction proposed by match-referee Mohammad Anees after requesting a hearing.
