The Australian wicketkeeper-batsman Brad Haddin has been fined 10 per cent of his applicable match fee for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during his side's
seven-wicket defeat against England in the final of the ICC World Twenty20 2010 at Kensington Oval on Sunday.
Haddin was charged with a Level 1 offence under article 2.1.3 of the code which
relates to "showing dissent at an umpire's decision during an international match".
The right-hander pleaded guilty to the charge and as such, under the provisions of the code, the matter was determined by Ranjan Madugalle of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referee without the need for a full hearing. The match referee imposed a fine equivalent to 10 per cent of the player's match fee.
The charge was brought by on-field umpires Billy Doctrove and Aleem Dar as well as
third umpire Billy Bowden and fourth official Rudi Koertzen.
