Mustafa was found to have breached Article 2.1.7 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel. It 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” Meanwhile Williams breached article 2.1.4 which relates to “using language or a gesture that is obscene, offensive or insulting during an International Match”.
