Sreesanth Fined ahead of India vs Pakistan Final of Twenty20 World Cup

Shanthakumaran Sreesanth was the most successful bowler for India in the match against Australia. Now, Sreesanth is expected to play big part against Pakistan with his impressive bowling. However, Sreesanth has been fined 25 percent of his match fee because of his excessinve appealing during the semi final match against Australia. In his fourth over, he appealed for a long time though umpire turned it down immediately. Thus he broke the ICC code of conduct and that is why umpires and match referee decided to fine the 25 percent of his match fee.

Sify reported:
Explaining his decision, Broad said: "When appealing for a decision a player has to realize he only needs to ask the question once and not over and over again, especially after the umpire has already turned down the appeal.
"Sreesanth was out of order and the incident set a poor example for the millions of people watching either at the venue or on television.

Indian team also fined for their slow over rate. However, I think, ahead of the India vs Pakistan match, Indian players will be inspired to continue their success and win the title of Twenty20 world cup. It is also true that Sreesanth should be more disciplined in the field and abide by the ICC rules.
