DHAKA: Bangladesh´s Tanzim Hasan Saqib has been fined 15 percent of his match fee after confronting Nepal captain Rohit Paudel during a World Cup game, the cricket council said Wednesday.

The incident occurred during their Group D match at the weekend in St. Vincent, when Bangladesh qualified for the Super Eight stage of the T20 World Cup with a 21-run victory. Tanzim, after bowling a delivery at the end of the third over of Nepal´s innings, walked towards Paudel in an aggressive manner and was deemed to have made “inappropriate physical contact”, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said.
