KL Rahul Fined 15% For “Showing Dissent” At Umpire’s Decision

India opener KL Rahul has been fined 15 per cent of his match fee for “showing dissent” at the umpire’s decision to give him out in the second innings of the fourth Test against England at the Oval, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said on Sunday. In the first session on Saturday, Rahul was batting on 46 when he edged a delivery from James Anderson to Jonny Bairstow.

The umpire initially gave it not out, but England reviewed and replays showed an edge, after which the umpire’s original decision was overturned.

Rahul looked displeased at the decision as he walked off.

Rahul was found to have breached Article 2.8 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, relating to “showing dissent at an umpire’s decision during an International Match.”
