Bangladesh seamer Khaled Ahmed has been fined 15 percent of his match fees and handed one demerit point for breaching level 1 of ICC code of conduct during the second Test against South Africa.  
Early in the second day's play in Gqeberha, Khaled threw the ball to Kyle Verreynne in "an inappropriate and dangerous manner" that hit his right glove.
According to the ICC, the 29-year-old was found to have breached Article 2.9 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to throwing a ball at or near a Player, Player Support Personnel, Umpire, Match Referee or any other third person in an inappropriate and/or dangerous manner during an International Match.
This is Khaled's first offence in 24-month period, in which four cumulative demerit points would lead to a Test ban.
On-field umpires Marais Erasmus and Allahudien Paleker, third umpire Adrian Holdstock and fourth umpire Bongani Jele levelled the charges against Khaled, who accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Andy Pycroft. Thus, no hearing was required.
Khaled picked up four wickets in the Test, including three in the first innings. Bangladesh lost the match by 332 runs after being set 413 to win.
