  • Upon deliberation and based on BAM’s Standard Operating Procedure, the Committee was satisfied that the incident involved only Iskandar Zulkarnain. The Committee sanctioned Iskandar Zulkarnain a one-time 50% fine of his monthly allowance.
  • Following that, the recent Coaching & Training Committee meeting has also decided that all players will undergo nicotine testing from time to time and any player tested positive will be severely dealt with.
