James Anderson was found guilty of showing dissent at the umpire's decision
England seamer James Anderson has been fined 15 per cent of his match fee after breaching level one of the International Cricket Council code of conduct during the second day of the fifth Test against India.
The 36-year-old made his disappointment clear with umpire Kumar Dharmasena when he gave Virat Kohli not out lbw on 16 in the 29th over of India’s first innings at The Oval.
Anderson snatched his cap and jumper from Dharmasena and then spoke to the Sri Lankan in an aggressive manner.
The Lancastrian admitted to breaching article 2.1.5 of the code, which relates to “showing dissent at an umpire’s decision during an international match”, and accepted the sanction to ensure no formal hearing was required.
