Mishra fined for showing dissent towards umpire
Kingston (Jamaica): Indian leg-spinner Amit Mishra was on Wednesday fined 10 per cent of his match fee for showing dissent towards the umpire after being given out in the ongoing first cricket Test against the West Indies.
"Amit Mishra has been fined 10 per cent of his match fee for a Level 1 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct during his team`s first Test against the West Indies in Jamaica," the ICC said in statement.
"Mishra was found to have breached Article 2.1.3 of the code which relates to showing dissent at an umpire`s decision by action or verbal abuse."
After play concluded on day two, Mishra accepted the sanction offered to him by match referee Jeff Crowe.
"On being given out caught behind the wicket (in the first innings), Amit stood his ground for a lengthy period of time and while doing so gestured to his arm guard until finally he left the crease," said Crowe.
"Batsmen are taking too long to leave the crease after being given out. Whether it is just disappointment, it`s still disrespectful and, as the code clearly states, unacceptable."
All Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand and a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player`s match fee.
The charge was brought by on-field umpires Ian Gould and Daryl Harper as well as third umpire Norman Malcolm.
