Opener Virender Sehwag was today docked 65 per cent of his match fee for showing dissent after his dismissal during the first cricket Test against Australia. ICC Match Referee Ranjan Madugalle said in a statement that Sehwag was found guilty of breaching the ICC's Code of Conduct for players and, considering his past record, it was decided to only penalise him with a fine. Sehwag exchanged words with Umpire Billy Bowden after he was declared leg before wicket on the fourth day's play on Saturday. Madugalle said Sehwag was guilty of a Level 2 offence under the ICC's Code of Conduct. Sehwag was called for a hearing on Saturday after the two field umpires Billy Bowden and Steve Bucknor reported the matter to Madugalle. Captain Sourav Ganguly and Manager V Patel were also present at the hearing. (PTI)
