Nagpur, Oct.6 (ANI): Controversial former Indian fast bowler S.Sreesanth has been fined 60 per cent of his match fee for his on field antics during the Irani Cup match in Nagpur.
The Rest of India and Kerala bowler was involved in an onfield brawl with Mumbai pacer Dhawal Kulkarni during the third day's play.
Sreesanth was found guilty of using offensive, obscene language/gestures, which fall below acceptable standards under clause 2.8 of Level II offence of the BCCI guidelines.
Match referee K P Bhaskar held a formal hearing on Monday afternoon before announcing his verdict.
If found guilty of any further breach in the code of conduct in future, Sreesanth will attract a Level III offence which could lead to a ban of minimum two to maximum five matches, Bhaskar said.
Kulkarni was also charged under clause 1.4 of Level I for instigating and wrongfully accusing the opposition bowler and brining the game to a halt.
He, however, was let off after being reprimanded and an official warning. (ANI)
