Dubai: Pakistan cricket captain Misbah-ul-Haq was today fined 15 per cent of his match fee showing dissent to the umpire after his dismissal in the second one-dayer against New Zealand in Sharjah.
"Adam Milne of New Zealand and Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq have been found guilty of breaching the ICC Code of Conduct in unrelated incidents during the second One-Day International in Sharjah on Friday," the ICC said in a statement.
Misbah was fined for a level 1 Article 2.1.3 offence, which relates to "Showing dissent at an Umpire's decision during an International Match."
The incident happened in the 37th over when Misbah expressed his displeasure after TV Umpire Joel Wilson held on-field umpire Richard Illingworth's decision to give him caught behind off Matt Henry.
Milne received an official reprimand for violating Level 1 Article 2.1.4 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to "language or a gesture that is obscene, offensive or insulting during an International match."
The right-arm fast bowler, after dismissing Shahid Afridi in the 41st over, was clearly observed using an inappropriate word.
After the match, both players admitted the offences and accepted the sanctions proposed by Roshan Mahanama of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees. As such, there was no need for a formal hearing.
The charges were levelled by on-field umpires Ahsan Raza and Richard Illingworth, TV Umpire Joel Wilson and fourth official Sohzab Raza.
