Vijay fined 30% of match fee

India opener Murali Vijay has been fined for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during the third day of the fourth Test between India and South Africa at Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium on Saturday.

 Vijay was fined 30 per cent of his match fee by ICC match refree Jeff Crowe. After being given out caught behind off the last ball of the fifth over from Morne Morkel, Vijay showed dissent at the decision by pointing at his arm guard before walking off. The charge was levelled by on-field umpires Kumar Dharmasena and Bruce Oxenford, and third umpire CK Nandan.

“The player was found to have breached Article 2.1.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “showing dissent at an umpire’s decision during an international match,” ICC stated.

All Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand and a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee.
