Rohit, Bravo fined for dissent

Two players have been fined for dissent following the third Test between West Indies and India

West Indian Darren Bravo and India's Rohit Sharma have both been fined 15 per cent of their match fee following a prolonged verbal exchange in the third Test in St Lucia.

The pair were charged with "conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game" for their actions on the final morning of the match, which India won by 237 runs.

The International Cricket Council said in a statement that the pair "ignored numerous requests and instructions from the umpires (Nigel Llong and Rod Tucker) to stop verbally engaging with each other in a manner that was not in keeping with the spirit of the game."

Bravo top-scored for the Windies with 59 as the hosts were bowled out for just 108.

Bravo and Sharma are the third and fourth players to be fined by the ICC in a matter of days.

England quick Stuart Broad was fined 20 per cent of his match fee on Saturday after tweeting his frustration regarding the controversial dismissal of Alex Hales on day one of the fourth Test against Pakistan at The Oval.

Hales had earlier been fined 15 per cent of his match fee for paying a visit to the third umpire’s room and then making some "inappropriate comments" as he left.

"One of the most fundamental principles of the sport is to always accept and respect an umpire’s decision," ICC match referee Richie Richardson said in regards to the Hales dismissal.

"In this case, Stuart ignored this golden rule and made inappropriate comments in regard to the umpires’ decision."
