As per a ICC media release, Khaleel violated Article 2.5 of the Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel during the fourth ODI between India and West Indies. He has been handed one demerit point and given one official warning after being found guilty of 'advancing aggressively' towards Samuels  after taking his wicket.

Khaleel admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Chris Broad after the match was over. He was found guilty of Level 1 breach which carries a minimum penalty of reprimand and maximum penalty of 50 percent match fee along with one or two demerit points.

Khaleel picked his best ODI figures on Monday night against Windies. He finished with three wickets for just 13 runs in five overs.

India won the fourth ODI by a huge margin of 224 runs to go 2-1 up in the 5-match ODI series. The fifth and last match of the series will be played in Thiruvananthapuram on 1 November.
