Mishra fined

Kingston (Jamaica): India's Mishra has been fined 10 per cent of his match fee for a Level 1 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct during the first Test against the West Indies here.

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, the player accepted the proposed sanction offered to him by Match Referee Jeff Crowe.

“On being given out caught behind the wicket, 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.

He added, “Batsmen are taking too long to leave the crease after being given out. Even if it is just disappointment, it's still disrespectful and, as the code clearly states, unacceptable.” — Special Correspondent
