Jehan Mubarak, the Sri Lanka batsman and Bangladesh's Khaled Mashud have both been fined for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during their one-dayer on Wednesday.

Mubarek was fined 25 percent of his match fee for showing dissent at the umpire's decision, while Mashud was fined 20 percent after being found guilty of bringing the game into disrepute.

"Disputing an umpire's decision shows a lack of respect for the umpire and there is no place for this type of behaviour in international cricket," Alan Hurst, ICC match referee, said. "[Mubarak] has recognized the inappropriateness of his actions."

Sri Lanka and Bangladesh meet again on Saturday for the third and final one-dayer, before the first Test begins at Chittagong on February 28.
