Barisal Burners v Duronto Rajshahi, BPL, Mirpur February 12, 2012

Rajshahi's Mushfiqur fined for showing dissent

ESPNcricinfo staff

Mushfiqur Rahim, the Duronto Rajshahi captain, has been fined for 'bringing the game into disrepute' during his team's Bangladesh Premier League match against Barisal Burners on Saturday. Following a code of conduct hearing by match referee Mike Procter, Mushfiqur was fined 25,000 Taka.

The umpires had reported Mushfiqur to Procter for his actions during his side's time in the field. Proctor concluded that by challenging the decision of the umpires and clearly showing dissent, Mushfiqur had brought the game into disrepute.

"Rahim accepted that he was guilty of the code of conduct breach," Procter said. "We took into account his general good conduct history but also felt that as captain of the side he must take responsibility for what happened on the field and a fine was imposed."

Rajshahi were defeated by Barisal, by 22 runs, slumping to their second consecutive defeat in two days.

    As for Gaye's part he should have walked knowing that he has nicked. Where is the sportsmanship gone these days?

    @Fazlul- Normally, I'd disagree but that was an absolutely ridiculous decision by the umpire!

    This is not good. Clearly it showing that Gayle was out but umpire ignore it. If there any confusion umpire could take a review but he did not. As a captain and as a player of course what Mushfiq did is right.
