Bangladesh pacer Abu Jayed on Sunday received an official reprimand for breaching the ICC code of conduct during the second day of the first Test against Pakistan in Rawalpindi.

Jayed also received one demerit point to his disciplinary record after he celebrated too close to Pakistani skipper Azhar Ali after dismissing him during the 23rd over of Pakistan’s innings.

Jayed was judged to have committed a level one breach as his behaviour was deemed as provocative.

Jayed admitted his offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Richie Richardson and there was no need for a formal hearing.

Level one breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.

When a player reaches four or more demerit points within a 24-month period, they are converted into suspension points and a player is banned.
