• Faf fined for reaction after dismissal

    South Africa’s Faf du Plessis has been fined 15 per cent of his match fee after he showed dissent at being given out in the fourth ODI against India. 

    Du Plessis was found guilty of ‘showing dissent at an umpire’s decision during an International Match’.

    The incident happened in the 15th over of South Africa’s run-chase when Du Plessis showed obvious dissent by raising his right hand after being declared caught behind off Axar Patel.

    Following the match, which India won by 35 runs, Du Plessis admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Chris Broad of the Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees. As such, there was no need for a formal hearing.
