Suresh Raina fined for dissent at umpire's decision


ndian batsman Suresh Raina has been fined 25 per cent of his match fee for showing dissent at an umpire's decision during the first day of the second test against West Indies, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said on Wednesday.

Left-handed batsman Raina, who led India in the five-match ODI series against West Indies in the absence of regular skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, showed his displeasure after being given out caught off leg spinner Devendra Bishoo.

"What Suresh did was a clear breach of the code, something the player himself has accepted," ICC match referee Chris Broad was quoted as saying in an ICC statement.

"There is a fine line between showing disappointment at a dismissal and demonstrating dissent but on this occasion Suresh was well over that line and his behaviour was unacceptable."

Raina pleaded guilty and accepted the fine imposed on him after the end of play on Tuesday, the statement added.
