The event took place at the end of the third over when Tanzim Hasan ended the over with a double-wicket maiden. This over by Tanzim was the match turning over for Bangladesh who failed to score big enough to defend against Nepal.

Tanzim Hasan Sakib dismissed Bhurtel(4) and Anil Sah(0) in the same over and gave a nasty start for Nepal.

At the end of the over, Hasan Sakib was seen showing a fierce face to Rohit who stood at the striker’s end. Rohit Paudel was seen giving a response in the same way. Before things started to worsen, the onfield umpire and players intervened and calmed down the players.

Tanzim was found to have breached Article 2.12 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “inappropriate physical contact with a Player, Player Support Personnel, Umpire, Match Referee or any other person (including a spectator during an International Match”.

The charges were levelled by on-field umpires Ahsan Raza and Sam Nogajski, along with third umpire Jayaraman Madanagopal and fourth umpire Kumar Dharmasena.

Tanzim admitted to the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Richie Richardson of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees, and there was no need for a formal hearing.

Bangladesh will play their first match of the Super 8 round against Australia on June 21 in Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua.
