Herschelle Gibbs, one of South Africa's opening batsmen, has been fined 40% of his match fee (approximately £800) for a "deliberate attempt to mislead an umpire" during the closing stages of the fourth day's play of the second Test between South Africa and England at Durban.

The umpire Darrell Hair reported Gibbs for gesturing at the top of his arm and pointing towards him after facing a rising delivery that led to a caught-behind appeal from Steve Harmison. Gibbs pleaded guilty to the offence, which breaches the ICC's code of conduct, and the match referee Clive Lloyd handed him the fine.

Gibbs was undefeated on 11 at stumps, having survived a chance off Harmison in the fourth over that Geraint Jones put down.
