England bowler Stuart Broad has been fined 30 percent of his match fee for twice telling umpire Aleem Dar to "just get on with the game" when Dar issued a warning for him kicking the pitch in the second Test against South Africa. (Scorecard)

The ICC says the incident happened during Tuesday's fourth day at Newlands.

Broad had forced South Africa's Temba Bavuma to edge behind but the catch was dropped by wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow. Broad showed his frustration by kicking the ground and England captain Alastair Cook was warned by the umpires over Broad damaging the pitch. Broad then made the comments to Dar.

Broad was called to appear at a disciplinary hearing after play. He pleaded not guilty but was found guilty of showing dissent to an umpire.
