Virender Sehwag has been fined 65% of his match fee by Ranjan Madugalle, the match referee, after being found guilty of violating section 2.2 of the Code of Conduct. The law pertains to "showing serious dissent" and the charge was brought against Sehwag by Billy Bowden and Steve Bucknor, the two on-field umpires, and AV Jayaprakash, the third umpire.
Sehwag pleaded guilty to the charge at a disciplinary hearing held at the end of the fourth day's play. The hearing was attended by Sehwag, Sourav Ganguly, the concerned umpires, and V Patel, the manager.
The incident that sparked off Sehwag's reaction came early in the second innings when he was adjudged lbw off Glenn McGrath by Bowden despite hitting the ball. The inside edge that sent the ball cannoning onto pad was so big that you did not even require television replays to tell you this. On his way out Sehwag said something to Bowden, and this caught the eye of the officials.
