Leicestershire's O'Brien penalised

Cricinfo staff

Iain O'Brien, the New Zealand fast bowler, has been penalised for showing dissent to an umpire's decision.

The incident occurred during Leicestershire's Championship match against Essex between July 21-24.

Umpires Steve Garratt and John Holder reported O'Brien to the ECB, and it was announced today that it was a Level One breach of the code.

This penalty remains on O'Brien's record for a period of two years, and any further Level One breach during that period will result in a further three penalty points.
