Bangladesh fast bowler Rubel Hossain has been handed a demerit point and was given an official reprimand for breaching the ICC's Code of Conduct during his side's six-wicket loss in the second T20I against Afghanistan in Dehradun on Tuesday (June 5).

During the 11th over of Afghanistan's chase, Rubel's leg-before-wicket appeal against Samiullah Shenwari was turned down by the on-field umpire following which he showed dissent. As a result, he was found to have breached Article 2.1.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel.

No formal hearing was held since the seamer accepted the sanction proposed by the match referee.

The third and final T20I of the series will be played at the same venue on Thursday (June 7).
