Fidel Edwards has been fined 15% of his match fee for using abusive language during the final Test at Riverside.

"When bowling, and in frustration, Fidel swore loudly enough to be heard by spectators at the ground and television audiences," ICC match referee Alan Hurst said. "We are not saying that players cannot show frustration or demonstrate passion, but Fidel's means of doing that was totally unacceptable and does not set an appropriate example.

"The player regrets his actions and I trust this penalty will serve to ensure it does not occur again."
