Rashid Khan handed one demit point for breaching ICC Code of Conduct

Afghanistan captain Rashid Khan has been handed an official reprimand and one demerit point for throwing his bat on the ground during the match against Bangladesh in St Vincent. This is his first offence within 24 months.

Rashid Khan Breached the ICC Code of Conduct

Rashid Khan was found in violation of Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct. He breached Article 2.9, which deals with ‘throwing a ball or any other cricket equipment at or near a player in an inappropriate or dangerous manner during an international match’.

The incident occurred in the final over of Afghanistan’s innings, when Rashid threw his bat on the ground in frustration after his batting partner, Karim Janat, declined a second run and the strike as a result.

The charge was levelled by on-field umpires Nitin Menon and Langton Rusere, third umpire Adrian Holdstock and fourth umpire Ahsan Raza. Rashid admitted to the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Richie Richardson, and so a formal hearing wasn’t required.

In the rain-affected game at St Vincent, Afghanistan scripted history by qualifying for the T20 World Cup 2024 semi-final.

Afghanistan made their T20 World Cup appearance in 2010 and waited nearly 15 years to achieve this glory. Afghanistan achieved this feat by beating Bangladesh in the T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8 game at St Vincent.

Apart from qualifying for the T20 World Cup 2024 semi-finals, the victory also knocked Australia out of the tournament who was left with a back door entry option with Bangladesh’s victory.
