Bangladesh coach Jamie Siddons has been fined ten percent of his applicable match fee after being found guilty of breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during the second Test between his side and England.

He was charged with a Level 1 offence, which relates to "showing dissent at an umpire's decision during an international match".

He pleaded guilty to the charge, which came about after he clearly showed his displeasure at a number of umpiring decisions that appeared to go against his side.

“Jamie became increasingly frustrated and let his emotions out during the second session of day three which was obvious for all to see,” match referee Jeff Crowe commented.

“Clearly he behaved inappropriately and he agrees that such actions and gestures must be kept behind closed doors. He is disappointed with himself that he was so public and he did not hesitate in pleading guilty and accepting the proposed sanction,” he added.
