Barbados Test: Raina fined 25 per cent of match fee for showing dissent

first_imgIndian batsman Suresh Raina has been fined 25 per cent of his match fee for a Level 1 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct during the second Test against the West Indies in Barbados.  Raina was found to have breached Article 2.1.3 of the code which relates to “showing dissent at an umpire’s decision by action or verbal abuse”. The offence took place in the 56th over of the Indian innings when Raina was caught off the bowling of Devendra Bishoo.  The batsman shook his head to indicate that he did not hit the ball which seemed to be an attempt to influence the umpire’s decision.  On being given out he looked to the sky in disgust and then after picking his bat up from the ground swung it at the dirt as well as shaking his head again.  The charge was brought by on-field umpires Asad Rauf and Billy Bowden as well as third umpire Gregory Brathwaite and fourth official Norman Malcolm.last_img
