Shahriar Nafees, the Bangladesh opener, has been fined 20% of his match-fees for dissent during the third one-day international against Australia at Fatullah.
Nafees was found guilty by Jeff Crowe, the match referee, for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct that relates to "Showing dissent at an umpire's decision by action or verbal abuse".
After he was given out leg before to Mitchell Johnson, Nafees shook his head and gestured with his bat in the direction of the Bangladesh dressing-room as he walked back. He was reported by Ian Howell and Nadir Shah, the on-field umpires, and AFM Akhtaruddin, the third umpire.
"The player admitted what he had done was wrong and I took this, together with his previously exemplary conduct, into account," said Crowe. "However, it is important to show that dissent of any sort at an umpire's decision is unacceptable and the player's punishment for his actions illustrates that fact."
