Shadab Khan fined 20 percent of match fee for ‘abusive’ celebration amid 2nd T20 against WI

West Indies have hit the ground with an inexperienced side. Marlon Samuels and Samuel Badree are the only two big names in the visiting side.

The Men in Green are in good form due to the recently-concluded Pakistan Super League.

In the match, Pakistan spinner Shadab Khan was fined 20 percent of match fee as he aggressively pointed his finger at West Indies opener Chadwick Walton after dismissing him. Khan made an inappropriate comment also for Walton who scored a 29-ball 40 with the help of five boundaries and two sixes.
