Brad Haddin, the Australia wicketkeeper, has been fined 10% of his match fee for breaching the ICC's Code of Conduct during his side's seven-wicket defeat at the hands of England in the ICC World Twenty20 final in Barbados. Haddin was charged with a Level 1 offence under article 2.1.3 of the code which relates to "showing dissent at an umpire's decision during an international match".

Haddin was given out caught-behind when he tried to pull a short delivery from Ryan Sidebottom. The ball appeared to have deviated off his hip and Haddin walked back visibly upset.

Haddin pleaded guilty to the charge and as such, under the provisions of the code, the matter was determined by Ranjan Madugalle, the match referee, without the need of a full hearing.

The charge was brought by on-field umpires Billy Doctrove and Aleem Dar as well as third umpire Billy Bowden and fourth official Rudi Koertzen.
