February 11, 2020: On Monday, five players have been sanctioned for brawling in the immediate aftermath of Bangladesh's victory over India in the under-19 World Cup final in South Africa at the weekend, the International Cricket Council said.

 

 

Towhid Hridoy, Shamim Hossain and Rakibul Hasan of Bangladesh and Indians Akash Singh and Ravi Bishnoi were all charged with breaches of the ICC code of conduct and handed international suspensions of between four and 10 matches.

 

 

 

 

The ICC's Geoff Allardice said, "The match was hard fought... but the elation and disappointment experienced by some players after the game spilled over into unedifying scenes that have no place in our sport".

 

 

 

 

Indian spinner Bishnoi, who was the highest wicket-taker in the tournament with 17, was handed a further sanction of two demerit points for giving Bangladesh batsman Avishek Das a send-off during the rain-disrupted final.
