Wahab Riaz, Ahmed Shehzad fined over scuffle in PSL Match
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Monday fined left-arm quick bowler Wahab Riaz and opening batsman Ahmed Shehzad with 40 for each penny and 30 for each penny of their match charges individually for ‘improper physical contact’, Dawn news repoted.
Riaz was speaking to Peshawar Zalmi and Shehzad was playing for Quetta Gladiators amid the seventeenth Pakistan Super League (PSL) match at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Sunday.
Combatants, batting to begin with, sent Shehzad and Asad Shafiq as their openers.
Shehzad was looking in a decent frame and all set for a major innings until Wahab disposed of his center stump in the wake of getting crushed for a compelling six in the fifth over.
The wicket took after a trade of unforgiving words between the bowler and the batsman.
Match arbitrator Roshan Mahnama issued a notice and fined both the players for damaging proviso 2.2.4 of the ICC Code of Conduct, which identifies with “unseemly and planned physical contact between players over the span of play”.
While alternate groups have encountered blended fortunes, the Shahid Afridi and the Sarfraz Ahmed-drove sides have kept on walking on to be among the main two PSL sides as such.
