South African spinner Imran Tahir faces ire of ICC for paying tribute to Junaid Jamshed through his t-shirt
ICC's decision came as Imran in a traditional soccer style rolled up his official t-shirt to reveal an image of Junaid Jamshed on a second shirt underneath during a match with Sri-Lanka a few days ago.
The South African bowler has been rebuked apparently for displaying a personal message without seeking prior approval from his home side or the ICC.
'This contravenes Section G1 of the ICC Clothing and Equipment Rules and Regulations, which says: Players and team officials shall not be permitted to wear, display or otherwise convey messages through armbands or other items affixed to clothing or equipment unless approved in advance by both the player or team official's and the ICC Cricket Operations Department,' said the ICC in a statement.
On the other hand, Tahir admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by the International governing body.
Reportedly, Imran had a close affiliation with the televangelist Junaid Jamshed who lost his life during tragic PK-661 flight crash in December last year.
The passenger list revealed there were 31 men, nine women and two infants on board the flight, including Junaid Jamshed and his family, as well as three foreigners.
