Dubai, Jun 28 (UNI) Australian captain Ricky Ponting has been fined 30 per cent of his match fee for dissent during his team's 63-run win over hosts West Indies in the second one-day international.

An International Cricket Council (ICC) statement said Ponting appeared to make a comment to the umpire yesterday after he had turned down a caught-behind appeal against Patrick Browne.

Although Ponting pleaded not guilty at the post-match hearing, ICC match referee Roshan Mahanama punished the player after viewing video footage of the incident.

Australia won the rain-hit game in Grenada by 63 runs yesterday, taking a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.
