Sindh pacer Sohail Khan has been fined 50% of his match fee for using abusive language after being dismissed in the clash against Southern Punjab at UBL Sports Complex in Karachi. The right-handed batsman, who has also played international cricket for Pakistan, made a level 2 offence relating to personal abuse of a player, player support personnel, umpire or match referee.
The incident occurred on the third day of the game, which was eventually won by Southern Punjab by an innings and 129 runs. Sohail was adjudged lbw by the umpire off the delivery by Rahat Ali and proceeded to use foul language in the direction of the standing official.
In another incident, Sindh’s opener Abid Ali was warned for a level 1 offence but not handed the fine despite the rules and regulations made by stricter for this season of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy. He had protested at being given lbw in the second innings.
