Misbah fined, Milne censured

DUBAI: Pakistan skipper Misbah-ul Haq was fined 15 percent of his match fee for showing dissent at an umpire’s decision and Kiwi bowler Adam Milne was reprimanded for using obscene language during a one-day international in Sharjah.

New Zealand won the match by four wickets on Friday to level the five-match series at 1-1 after Pakistan took the first game in Dubai.

Misbah also hurt his hamstring while fielding and is now doubtful for the third match, also in Sharjah on Sunday.

“Misbah was fined 15 percent of his match fee for… showing dissent at an umpire’s decision during an international match,” the International Cricket Council (ICC) said in a statement.

Misbah expressed his displeasure in the 37th over after TV umpire Joel Wilson upheld on-field umpire Richard Illingworth’s decision to give him caught behind off paceman Matt Henry.
