Bresnan fined for showing dissent
Saturday 22 October 2011

The ICC in a statement said Bresnan was found to have breached Article 2.1.3 of the code which relates to "showing dissent at an umpire's decision during an international match", which also includes snatching the cap from the umpire.

The incident took place at the end of the 18th over when the fast bowler snatched his cap from on-field umpire Sudhir Asnani after finishing his fifth over. The charge was laid by the on-field umpires Billy Bowden, Asnani and third umpire S. Ravi

Bresnan pleaded not guilty to the charge. As such, a hearing took place at the end of the match which was attended by all the umpires, the player, England coach Andy Flower and England team manager Phil Neale.

Match Referee Roshan Mahanama said that the umpires deserve the utmost respect not only because they do a difficult job in the middle but also because millions of budding and aspiring cricketers watch every move of the players.

"This makes all the international cricketers more responsible and accountable for their actions, particularly in their dealings with the umpires in various match situations," Mahanama said.
