Rubel Hossain Reprimanded For Breaching ICC Code of Conduct
Bangladesh fast bowler Rubel Hossain received an official reprimand for breaching the ICC code of conduct. Hossain was guilty of breaking the Level 1 offense of the governing body. Thus, the Bangladesh pacer adds one demerit to his disciplinary record.
Subsequently, Rubel Hossain was punished during the ODI decider against Windies which the visitors won by 18 runs. Eventually, the tourists also won the series by 2-1.
Rubel Hossain adds one more demerit point to his bag.
Meanwhile, Rubel already had one demerit point under his bag. Thus, the right-handed fast bowler now has two demerit points under his belt.
Rubel was found to have breach Article 2.1.4 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel. The article relates to “using language or a gesture that is obscene, offensive or insulting during an International Match”.
The incident happened in the 28th over of the Windies batting innings when they were chasing the total. Rubel used an inappropriate word in his follow through which was picked by the stump mic. The Bangladesh quick had shown his frustration when an edge from the bat of Shimron Hetmyer went for four.
After the completion of the match, Rubel accepted the charges. Thus, there was no need for a formal hearing.
Furthermore, the charge was level by on-field umpires S. Ravi, and Joel Wilson, third umpire Richard Illingworth Nigel Duguid Marais Erasmus, and fourth umpire Nick Cook.
Generally, the Level 1 offenses carry a 50% reduction in the match fees along with one or two demerit points to the player’s disciplinary record.
Meanwhile, Tamim Iqbal was the Man of the Match for his brilliant hundred. Furthermore, the southpaw opener was also the Player of the Series.
