Pakistan International Asif Ali has been slapped with a 20 per cent match-fee fine after swinging his bat at Keemo Paul during Jamaica Tallawahs’ Caribbean Premier League (CPL) victory over Guyana Amazon Warriors.
During Tallawahs’ chase, Asif was sent back to the changing room for just three in the 8th over after top-edging off Paul into the safe hands of Chris Green who made no mistake at long-on.
Asif Ali’s weird behavior shocked everyone from the commentators to the players. As a result of his actions, Paul once again turned and went nose to nose Asif.
The incident was adjudged to have breached the CPL’s code of conduct. Ali has been charged under section 2.18 having been deemed to be “acting contrary to the spirit of the game”.
