MS Dhoni, the Chennai Super Kings captain, has been fined 10% of his match fee for making an inappropriate public comment with respect to an umpire's decision.

Dhoni had called umpire Richard Illingworth's decision to give Dwayne Smith lbw "horrible" during the post-match presentation, after Chennai Super Kings lost the Qualifier to Mumbai Indians by 25 runs at Wankhede Stadium.

Smith was adjudged lbw to a full toss from Lasith Malinga in the first over of the Super Kings chase, but replays indicated the ball was missing leg stump by a substantial margin.

Dhoni admitted the level 1 offence and accepted the sanction.
