The International Cricket Council said South Africa captain Faf du Plessis has had his appeal against a ball tampering fine dismissed.

Du Plessis had been fined 100 percent of his match fee last month after being caught on camera during South Africa's second test against Australia in Hobart sucking a mint and rubbing saliva into the ball.

ICC Code of Conduct Commission chair Michael Beloff deemed that the "original sanction" by ICC match referee Andy Pycroft "was appropriate" and dismissed Du Plessis's appeal.

ICC chief executive David Richardson described the offence as "an obvious breach" of the ball-tampering law.
