De Kock pleaded guilty to the charge laid by match referee Chris Broad, with no formal hearing required.
p>Broad said de Kock confronted the Bangladesh opener & "deliberately brushed Tamim Iqbal's shoulder & rib area. This resulted in a heated exchange between the two, initiated by the contact made by de Kock. This type of incident has no place on a cricket field."
