Pakistan spinner Shadab Khan's send-off to West Indies batsman Chadwick Walton during the second T20I between the two teams in Karachi on Tuesday didn't go unnoticed as he has been fined 20 percent of his match and handed one demerit point for breaching ICC's Code of Conduct.
The 19-year-old 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."
The incident in question saw Shadab pointing a finger at Walton after dismissing him. The wrist-spinner then also made an inappropriate remark.
No formal hearing in the incident was required as Shadab admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by David Boon of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees after the on-field umpires Shozab Raza and Ahmed Shahab, third umpire Ahsan Raza, as well as fourth umpire Khalid Mahmood levelled the charges.
Pakistan went on to win the match by 82 runs and took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
