In a statement issued by the PCB, Naseem was charged with violating Article 2.2 which deals with the abuse of cricket equipment or clothing, ground equipment or fixtures and fittings.

“Naseem had kicked the stumps after the final ball of Multan Sultans’ innings,” added the statement.

The pacer pleaded guilty to the charge and accepted the sanctions proposed by match referee Roshan Mahanama, hence, a formal hearing was not needed.

The charge for violating the code of conduct was imposed by on-field umpires Ruchira Palliyaguruge and Muhammad Asif.
