Islamabad United pace bowler Naseem Shah was fined 10% of the match fee after he was found breaching Pakistan Super League’s (PSL) Code of Conduct by kicking stumps during the team’s game against Multan Sultans a day earlier.

Shah was charged with violating Article 2.2 which deals with the abuse of cricket equipment or clothing, ground equipment or fixtures and fittings. He had kicked the stumps after the final ball of Multan Sultans’ innings.

The United bowler pleaded guilty to the charge, imposed by on-field umpires Ruchira Palliyaguruge and Muhammad Asif, and accepted the sanctions proposed by match referee Roshan Mahanama.

His actions were considered a level 1 breach of the PSL’s Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel.

The United beat Sultan by three wickets in one of the high-scoring thriller of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 9 in Rawalpindi a day earlier.

The United chased down the target of 229 on the last ball of the inning. With this victory, they are the third team to qualify for the playoffs.

Meanwhile, Multan Sultans were fined for maintaining a slow over-rate in the same match.

Sultans were ruled to be one over short of their target by match referee Roshan Mahanama, who took into consideration time allowances before arriving at the decision.

As such, and in accordance with Article 2.22 of the HBL PSL Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, each player was fined 10% of his match fee.
