India’s Raina fined for dissent at umpire’s decision

BRIDGETOWN,  (Reuters) – Indian batsman Suresh Raina  has been fined 25 percent 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 today.
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 yesterday, the statement added.
