Iftikhar Ahmed charged for showing dissent

Lahore, 26 October 2021: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa captain Iftikhar Ahmed has been fined 20 per cent of his match fee for a level 1 offence for showing dissent at an umpire’s decision during the first round Quaid-e-Azam Trophy 2021-22 match against Northern at the Gaddafi Stadium.

Iftikhar argued with the umpire when his appeal was turned down in the 122nd over of Northern’s innings. He was found to have violated Article 2.8 of the PCB Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel.

On-field umpires Rashid Riaz and Shozab Raza levelled the charge on the all-rounder, who accepted the sanction proposed by match-referee Mohammad Anees after requesting a hearing.
