Tamim admitted the charge and accepted the sanction imposed by Ranjan Madugalle of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees without the need to convene a disciplinary hearing.
Through his admission, Tamim was found to have breached Level 1 Article 2.1.4 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which states that it is an offence to use: “… language or a gesture that is obscene, offensive or insulting during an International match.”
The charges were leveled by on-field umpires Anisur Rahman and Chris Gaffaney, and third umpire Sharfuddoula, all from the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Umpires.
All Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand and a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee.
