Parchment fined for running into Steyn

Brenton Parchment, the West Indies opener, has been fined 50 percent of his match fee after running into Dale Steyn, the South Africa fast bowler, during the second day's play of the final Test in Durban.

The charge was laid by Simon Taufel and Aleem Dar, the two on-field umpires as well as the reserve umpire at the close of the second day's play. Parchment had pleaded not guilty to the offence.

A hearing, which was also attended by Clive Lloyd, the West Indies manager, and Dwayne Bravo, West Indies' captain, was held today after South Africa had completed their innings-and-100-run victory.
