The incident unfolded at the end of the third T20I between Sri Lanka and Afghanistan in Dambulla when Hasaranga approached umpire Lyndon Hannibal to express criticism regarding a decision on a high full toss not being called a no-ball.

Afghan cricketer Rahmanullah Gurbaz has also been fined under ICC rules. In the same match, Gurbaz was fined 15 percent of his match fee for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct.

Rahmanullah was found to be in breach of Article 2.4 of the Code, which deals with “disobedience to an umpire’s instruction during an international match.”

Additionally, one demerit point has been added to Rahmanullah’s disciplinary record, which is his second offense within a period of 24 months taking his total demerit points to two.

The ban was imposed on Rahmanullah for changing the grip of his bat on the field despite repeated warnings against doing so.
