Rashid Khan Reprimanded for ICC Code of Conduct Breach

Afghanistan’s captain Rashid Khan has received an official reprimand for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 Group 1 match against Bangladesh.

The incident occurred in the final over of Afghanistan’s innings when Rashid threw his bat to the ground after his batting partner, Karim Janat, refused a second run. Rashid’s actions were found to violate Article 2.9 of the ICC Code of Conduct, which prohibits throwing any item of cricket equipment in an inappropriate and/or dangerous manner during an international match.

This is Rashid’s first offence within a 24-month period, resulting in one demerit point being added to his disciplinary record. Rashid admitted to the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Richie Richardson of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees, thus avoiding a formal hearing.

The charge was brought by on-field umpires Nitin Menon and Langton Rusere, third umpire Adrian Holdstock, and fourth umpire Ahsan Raza. Penalties for Level 1 breaches include a minimum of an official reprimand, a maximum fine of 50% of a player’s match fee, and the addition of one or two demerit points.
