Rubel Hossain reprimanded for using foul language
Rubel Hossain has been reprimanded for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during the third and final ODI against Windies in St Kitts on Saturday.
It is reported that Rubel used inappropriate words to Shimron Hetmyer after the batsman hit him for a boundary in the 28th over.
The pacer has now owned two demerit points.
The ICC press release said, “Rubel was found to have breached Article 2.1.4 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to ‘using language or a gesture that is obscene, offensive or insulting during an International Match.”
“After the end of the match, Rubel admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Chris Broad of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing,” it stated.
Earning four demerit points within next 24 months could result in a suspension of one Test or two limited over matches.
The Bangladesh pacer got his first demerit point during the second T20I against Afghanistan in Dehradun last month.
Bangladesh won the one day international series in West Indies by 2-1.
