Digital Desk, Christchurch. New Zealand pacer Kyle Jamieson has been fined 15 per cent of his match fee by the ICC for breaching rules during the second Test against Bangladesh. New Zealand team won by an innings and 117 runs over Bangladesh on Tuesday.
The Kiwis bundled them out for 278 after Bangladesh were asked to follow-on at the Hagley Oval here, with Jamieson taking four wickets in the second innings. At the same time, in the first, the fast bowler took two wickets.
Jamieson was found to have violated Article 2.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which deals with the use of language, actions or gestures. He had reacted inappropriately during the match by dismissing a batsman, for which he was found guilty.
The incident happened in the 41st over of Bangladesh’s first innings on Monday, when Jamieson used inappropriate language after dismissing Yasir Ali. Jamieson pleaded guilty and accepted the sanction proposed by Jeff Crowe of the ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees, with no need for a formal hearing.
In addition, a demerit point has been added to Jamieson’s disciplinary record, for whom it was his third offense in a 24-month period, bringing his total to three.
Jamieson’s previous violations were found to have been breached during an ODI against Bangladesh in Christchurch on March 23, 2021 and a Test match against Pakistan in Tauranga on December 28, 2020.
