Tillakaratne Dilshan fined 20 per cent match fee for showing dissent
Tillakaratne Dilshan was fined 20 per cent of his match fee for showing dissent against an umpire’s decision after being dismissed in his side’s final group match against New Zealand in the ICC World Twenty20 Championship.
The incident happened in the fourth over, when Dilshan rubbed his elbow after the ball deflected off his gloves to the wicket keeper to indicate that the ball had not touched his gloves.
The charge was brought by on-field umpires Rod Tucker and Aleem Dar, third umpire Bruce Oxenford and reserve umpire Steve Davis.
Last evening, Dilshan admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by David Boon of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees.
