James Anderson fined for dissent


LONDON:  England fast bowler James Anderson has been fined 15 percent of his match fee for showing dissent to the umpire in Saturday’s play in the fifth Test against India at the Oval. Anderson is just two shy of Australia great Glenn McGrath’s record of 563 Test wickets.

Chasing that record Anderson was angry at an unsuccessful lbw review against Virat Kohli in the 29th over of India’s innings. He snatched his cap and jumper from umpire Kumar Dharmasena and ‘spoke to him in an aggressive manner’, the ICC said and added: “Anderson has admitted the offence and accepted the sanction.”
