Feb.14 (CRICKETNMORE) - Zimbabwe’s all-rounder Sikandar Raza has been fined 15 per cent of his match fee for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during the third One-Day International against Afghanistan in Sharjah on Tuesday.

Raza was found to have violated Article 2.1.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “showing dissent at an umpire’s decision during an international match”.

In addition to the fine, one demerit point has been added to Raza’s disciplinary record.

The incident happened in the 23rd over of Zimbabwe’s innings when Raza, after being adjudged leg before, questioned the umpire’s decision by raising his arms before leaving the crease after a short time.

After the match, Raza admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Richie Richardson of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees. As such, there was no need for a formal hearing.
