Rage proves costly for triple century maker Muhammad Huraira
Karachi, Pakistan: Muhammad Huraira of Northern has been fined 20% of his match fee for a level 1 offense of expressing dissent at an umpire’s decision during the ongoing pink-ball final of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy 2021-22 match against Khyber Pakhtunkhwa at the National Stadium in Karachi.
Huraira brandished his bat to express his disappointment before departing the crease in the 22nd over of the innings, after being adjudged out LBW by the umpire.
As a result, he was deemed to have breached Article 2.8 of the PCB’s ‘Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel‘.
The batter was charged by on-field umpires Asif Yaqoob and Faisal Khan Afridi. Huraira accepted the sentence imposed by match-referee Nadeem Arshad.
19-year-old Muhammad Huraira became the 2nd youngest Pakistani after Javed Miandad to score a first-class triple century.
Muhammad Huraira, the veteran all-rounder Shoaib Malik’s nephew achieved this feat in his maiden ‘First Class’ season, having scored two tons before producing the triple century.
