Sydney: Ishant Fined for 'Aggressive Gesture' to Symonds


Sydney, Feb 25: Sydney has gone down into the history books for the Harbhajan-Symonds fiasco during the India-Australia Test series.

However, the ghosts of Sydney seems to get back to haunt the teams in the ODI series as well.

Andrew Symonds is involved again. Television replays show that Andrew Symonds said something to Ishant Sharma after the lanky Indian bowled Symonds out in Sunday's one-dayer in Sydney.

Sharma replied in kind, showing Symonds the way to the pavillion.

Ishant was called for a hearing on Monday morning and has been fined 15 per cent of his match fees.

He was charged for pointing or gesturing towards the pavilion in an aggressive manner by a bowler or other member of the fielding side upon the dismissal of a batsman.

Australia has been fined for two slow overs bowled in Sydney on Sunday.

Ricky Ponting has been fined 20 per cent of his match fee, while each player has received 10 per cent fine.
