PSL 7 Ben Cutting and Sohail Tanvir Fined for Inappropriate Gestures

Peshawar Zalmi’s Ben Cutting and Quetta Gladiators’ Sohail Tanvir were both fined 15% of their match costs for breaking a Level 1 violation of the PSL Code of Conduct during their respective teams’ encounter in the Pakistan Super League 2022 on Tuesday.

Both players were found guilty of violating Article 2.6 of the PSL Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which prohibits them from “performing an obscene, offensive, or disparaging gesture during a PSL Match.”

Cutting was involved in the incident in the last over of Zalmi’s innings when the batter made improper gestures with his fingers after hitting the bowler for a third consecutive six.

After catching Cutting off Naseem Shah on the first ball of the final over, Sohail performed similar gestures.

“Inappropriate gestures have no place in this beautiful sport,” said match referee Ali Naqvi. As role models, the players must always grasp and remember their on- and off-field obligations. Such behavior sends an incorrect impression to the younger generation of cricketers. The PSL 2022 is being played in a positive, upbeat atmosphere, and I’d like to see the players continue to battle hard on the field of play while remaining true to the spirit of the game.

If a punishment of up to 25% of the applicable match fee is imposed.”Because Cutting and Sohail both pleaded guilty to the counts and accepted Ali Naqvi’s suggested punishments, there was no need for a formal hearing.” The charges were leveled by on-field umpires Michael Gough and Rashid Riaz, third umpire Asif Yaqoob and fourth umpire Waleed Yaqoob.
