Symonds fined for McCullum remarks

Melbourne:

Troubled all-rounder Andrew Symonds was on Thursday fined 4000 Australian dollar for his radio rant against New Zealand wicket-keeper batsman Brendon McCullum.

A Cricket Australia Code of Conduct Commission hearing has upheld a charge against Symonds after he pleaded guilty for calling McCullum a "lump of shit" during an FM radio last week.

At the CA hearing on Thursday, Code of Conduct Senior Commissioner Gordon Lewis found the controversial all-rounder guilty of breaching CA Code of Behaviour Rule 9 relating to detrimental public comment and issued a fine of 4000 Australian dollars as penalty for the breach.

However, Symonds escaped a suspension after CA treated him as a first time offender of breach of Code of Behaviour.

The Queenslander is expected to make a public statement later today.
