MULTAN: Pakistan’s rising star and Northern batsman Haider Ali has been fined for a breach of the PCB Code of Conduct for Player Support Personnel during the seventh match of the National T20 Cup against Central Punjab.
According to a statement issued by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Haider Ali was fined 30 percent of his applicable match fee for a Level 1 offence relating to showing dissent at an umpire’s decision during a match.
