Dhoni fined, Mustafizur too
India one-day skipper MS Dhoni and Bangladesh tyro Mustafizur Rahman have both been fined by the International Cricket Council following their mid-pitch collision in Thursday night's one-day international, with the Indian skipper coming in for admonishment by the ICC's Match Referee.
Dhoni has been fined 75 per cent of his match fee for the incident, while Mustafizur has been docked half of his fee.
Dhoni and debutant left-armer Mustafizur collided in the 25th over as India's skipper was running to the danger end on a quick single.
The impact jarred the bowler and drew a quick rebuke from Dhoni before umpires quickly intervened to ensure things remained cool on the field. Dhoni then turned away with a smile.
Match Referee Andy Pycroft imposed the fines after dismissing Dhoni's version of events and saying an experienced Indian skipper should have done more to avoid the collision.
