The Pakistan Cricket Board on Friday fined Haris Rauf 10 per cent of his match fee after he was found guilty of violating PCB’s Code of Conduct during Lahore’s clash with Multan in the ongoing Pakistan Super League.
The fast bowler violated clause 2.1.4 of the PCB Code of Conduct, which relates to ‘using language or a gesture that is obscene, offensive or insulting during a match.’
The incident happened in the last over of Multan’s innings when Haris Rauf caught Daniel Christian short of his ground but offered quite a send-off to the batsman ‘in a manner which was insulting and against the spirit of the game,’ according to a statement by PCB.
Haris accepted the sanction put in place by match referee Roshan Mahanama after charges were laid by on-field umpires Ranmore Martinesz and Shozab Raza, third umpire Rashid Riaz and fourth umpire Tariq Rasheed.
Lahore Qalandars currently sit at fourth spot after their win against Multan Sultans and will face Quetta Gladiators in their next encounter on February 23.
