Bangladesh batsman Nafees fined for dissent


Bangladesh batsman Shahriar Nafees has been fined 20 percent of his match fee for dissent after being dismissed in the third one-dayer with Australia.

Nafees reacted angrily after being given out lbw en route to the hosts nine-wicket defeat in Fatullah.

He shook his head and gestured with his bat towards the Bangladesh dressing room as he left the field.

“The player admitted what he had done was wrong and I took this, together with his previously exemplary conduct, into account,” match referee Jeff Crowe said in a statement.

“However, it is important to show that dissent of any sort at an umpire’s decision is unacceptable and the player’s punishment for his actions illustrates that fact.”

Australia won the series 3-0.
