India's off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has been fined 10 per cent of his match fee for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during the third day's play in the first cricket Test against Australia in Chennai on Sunday.

The player exceeded the permitted number of manufacturers' logos when he walked onto the field with four logos on the straps of his batting pads, an ICC media release said.

The charge against Ashwin was brought by on-field umpires Marais Erasmus and Kumar Dharmasena and third umpire Vineet Kulkarni.
