Tim Bresnan (R): Fined for showing dissent to an umpire in Mohali.
England's Tim Bresnan has been fined 7.5% of his match fee for showing dissent towards an umpire during Thursday's one-day international against India in Mohali, the International Cricket Council have announced.
The Level 1 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct related to an incident at the end of the 18th over when the fast bowler snatched his cap from umpire Sudhir Asnani after finishing his fifth over.
Bresnan pleaded not guilty to the charge, which led to a hearing at the end of the match attended by the player, the umpires, England coach Andy Flower and England team manager Phil Neale.
Roshan Mahanama of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees said in a statement: "The umpires deserve the utmost respect not only because they do a difficult job in the middle, but also because millions of budding and aspiring cricketers watch every move of the players.
"This makes all the international cricketers more responsible and accountable for their actions, particularly in their dealings with the umpires in various match situations."
England lost the match by five wickets and, in the process, surrendered the five-match series as India took an unassailable 3-0 lead.
