Pakistan Shaheens punished (Penalized) for Tampering the Ball
Pakistan Shaheens were fined five runs for ball-tampering in the final One-Day International (ODI) of the six-match series against Zimbabwe in Harare, Wisden reported.
Zimbabwe Select won the six-match ODI series against Pakistan Shaheens 4-2. Shaheens fell 32 runs short and were all out for 353 in 49.2 overs.
Umpire Aknu Chabi, who has umpired in more than 50 international matches across all formats, awarded five penalty runs to the home side for ball tampering by Shaheens, also known as Pakistan A. .
It is unclear who was behind the tampering and how the ball was tampered with, the publication said.
However, the rules state that if an umpire believes that the condition of the ball has changed unfairly, he can authorize the ball to be turned into bat.
“Irrespective of whether the ball has been changed or not, they have to give five penalty runs to the opposition,” Wisden said.
Law 41.3 of the Laws of Cricket deals with changing the conditions of the match ball. Clause 184.108.40.206 states: “Regardless of whether the substitute ball is chosen to be used, the bowler’s end umpire shall award 5 penalty runs to the opposing side.”
