Salunke fined

KATHMANDU: Bhairahawa Gladiators’ Indian recruit Pratham Salunke has been fined for breaching code of conduct during the team’s TVS Everest Premier League match against Pokhara Rhinos at the TU Stadium on Monday.

Salunke, who accepted the offense, has been hit with 50 per cent of his match fees for bringing the game into disruption, said Match Referee Manohar Adhikari.

Salunke — who struck five consecutive boundaries off Bikram Sob in the third over — exchanged words with Taj Wali after the Pakistani fast bowler rattled down his stumps in the last ball of the fourth over.
