In the Pakistan Super League match between Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators, two players clashed fiercely. The heat in the field increased so much that the umpire had to come to the rescue. Now both the players have been fined 15 percent of the match fee. These players were Sohail Tanveer and Ben Cutting. These two players have also clashed in the Caribbean Premier League in the year 2018. During the match, both the players pointed fingers at each other and argued a lot. For this reason, action has been taken against both.
In the match on Tuesday, Cutting scored 27 runs in an over of Sohail Tanvir. It also included three sixes. After hitting his third consecutive six in this over, he showed a finger to Tanwari. Tanveer also replied to him and as the matter escalated, the umpire had to come for reconciliation. However, in the very next over, Cutting was dismissed for playing a big shot against Naseem Shah. Sohail Tanvir caught his catch and showed him the finger with both hands.

Fines imposed on both players
Both the players were found guilty as per the rules of the Pakistan Super League and 15 per cent of their match fees were deducted. Match referee Ali Naqvi said that there is no place for such inappropriate gestures in this game. Players need to understand and remember their responsibility on and off the field. These players are role models of the youth and such gestures send the wrong message.
