India pace bowler Ishant Sharma has been fined 15 percent of his match fee for giving England batsman Dawid Malan a send-off after dismissing him during the first Test at Edgbaston.

After Malan was caught at gully, Ishant began celebrating, but he subsequently turned to Malan and yelled.

As a result of his actions, Ishant, who was also handed a demerit point, was charged with breaching¬†Article 2.1.7 of ICC’s code of conduct, which relates to “using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batsman upon his/her dismissal during an international match”.

Since Ishant admitted to the offence and sanctions imposed by match referee Jeff Crowe, there will be no need for a formal hearing.
