Kevin Pietersen has been fined 30 percent of his match fee for showing dissent after being dismissed during England's defeat in the second Test against India in Mohali.

Pietersen was charged with breaching Level 1.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct by the on-field umpires Darrell Hair and Simon Taufel and TV umpire AV Jayaprakash, after he was seen shaking his head as he left the field of play.

Replays demonstrated that the ball that had dismissed him had brushed his forearm, not his glove, before ballooning up into the hands of Rahul Dravid at slip. But umpire Hair gave him out for 4 as England collapsed on the fourth afternoon.

Pietersen subsequently pleaded guilty to breaching the ICC Code at a hearing conducted by ICC match referee, Ranjan Madugalle, after the end of the match on Monday. The hearing was attended by Pietersen, England's captain Andrew Flintoff, the coach Duncan Fletcher and the match umpires.

Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand and a maximum penalty of a 50 percent fine of a player's match fee. For Level 1 breaches of the ICC Code of Conduct the match referee's decision is final and binding.
