Rashid Khan Reprimanded By ICC For Throwing A Bat During BAN vs AFG 2024 T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8 Clash

Afghanistan captain Rashid Khan has been reprimanded by the International Cricket Council (ICC) for showing dissent towards a teammate during the Super 8 match against Bangladesh in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

The incident took place in the last over of Afghanistan’s innings. Rashid Khan and Karim Janat were at the crease when Rashid missed a shot towards cover on the third ball of the over. Trying to retain the stroke, Rashid attempted a second run but was sent back by Janat, causing Rashid to lose his cool. Out of frustration, Rashid threw his bat on the ground before returning to his crease. Janat then picked up the bat and handed it back to his captain, who remained visibly upset.

Rashid has received an official reprimand and one demerit point for his behavior. This is his first offense in a 24-month period. He was found guilty of breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct, specifically Article 2.9, which relates to “throwing a ball or other cricket equipment at or near a player in an improper or dangerous manner during an international contest.”
