Pakistan bowler Sohail Tanvir has been fined 10 per cent of his match fee for a breach of the code of conduct during Friday's Twenty20 loss to South Africa in Dubai.

Tanvir was punished for pointing towards the dressing room with both hands when he dismissed AB de Villiers for 5 in the 18th over.

The code of conduct prohibits "pointing or gesturing toward the pavilion by a bowler or a fielder upon the dismissal of a batsman during an international match."

The ICC said in a Saturday statement that the left-arm seamer had accepted the sanction imposed by match referee Ranjan Madugalle, meaning there was no need for a disciplinary hearing.

Having scored 150-5 in their innings, South Africa won the match by six runs to complete a 2-0 victory in the series.
