The opener pleaded guilty to "inappropriate and deliberate physical contact between Players in the course of play during an International Match" after pushing Sri Lanka batsman Tillakaratne Dilshan.

The level two charge was laid by umpires Johan Cloete and Shozab Raza and their fellow match officials Richard Illingworth and Ahsan Raza.

Ahmed's punishment was determined by David Boon of the elite panel of ICC match referees.
