Rossouw fined

DHAKA: South African batsman Rilee Rossouw has been fined 50 per cent of his match fee for a code of conduct breach during a one-day international against Bangladesh, the International Cricket Council said on Monday. Rossouw, 25, was found to have been involved in a shoulder barge with Bangladesh’s opening batsman Tamim Iqbal, who was walking back after being dismissed during Sunday’s second international in Dhaka. Rossouw pleaded guilty over charges of “inappropriate and deliberate physical contact” laid by match referee David Boon and he accepted the penalty, the International Cricket Council said in a statement. The amount that Rossouw has to pay was not made known. Bangladesh beat South Africa by seven wickets to level three-match series 1-1. The third and final match of the series  will be held in Chittagong on Wednesday.

Susic back in France

THONON-LES-BAINS: Safet Susic, who coached Bosnia at last year’s World Cup in Brazil, has returned to the game after being handed the reins at French club Evian, who were relegated from Ligue 1 at the end of last season, confirmed the appointment on Monday without revealing the length of contract signed by the 60-year-old Susic. A former Paris Saint-Germain player, Susic spent five years in charge of Bosnia, leading them to their first major tournament finals at the 2014 World Cup. However, after being eliminated from a group that contained Argentina and Nigeria in Brazil, Bosnia had a poor start to Euro 2016 qualifying and Susic was sacked in November last year, with Mehmed  Bazdarevic replacing him.
