Pakistan spinner Saeed Ajmal has been fined by the ICC for his aggressive reaction after dismissing Sri Lanka skipper Kumar Sangakkara.
Ajmal has been fined 15% of his match fee in the Twenty20 international in Colombo.
The off-spinner was charged under Level 1.6 of the ICC's code of conduct after pointing to the pavilion and exchanging words with Sangakkara following the home captain's dismissal.
The incident was reported by on-field umpires Asoka de Silva and Tyron Wijewardene as well as third umpire Gamini Silva and fourth official Gamini Dissanayake.
"In coming to my decision I took into account the fact the player immediately recognised his error of judgement and apologised to both umpires. He also did so to Kumar Sangakkara after the game," said elite panel match referee Alan Hurst.
"The player had no previous instances of this type of behaviour but it was pointed out to him during the hearing that his actions were a clear breach of the ICC Code of Conduct and something seen not only on the replay screen at the ground but also by the many millions of people watching on television around the world.
"This type of action cannot be tolerated as it does not promote the playing of the game in the expected positive spirit," he added.
