Reprimand For Warner After Admitting Dissent
David Warner, Australia's opening batsman, has been handed an official reprimand after pleading guilty to dissent during the fourth One-Day International against Sri Lanka in Sydney.
After Warner was given out leg before wicket to Thisara Perera for 60 in the 29th over of Australia's innings, Warner delayed his departure from the crease while shaking his head.
He was subsequently found to be in breach of Article 2.1.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct which relates to showing dissent at an umpire's decision.

Warner admitted the charge, which was brought by onfield umpires Marais Erasmus and Paul Reiffel, third umpire Richard Kettleborough and fourth umpure John Ward.
As Warner pleaded guilty, match referee Javagal Srinath was not required to hold a formal hearing.
The fifth and final match of the series is in Hobart on Wednesday (23rd January). Sri Lanka lead the series 2-1 after the match at the S.C.G was eventually abandoned due to bad weather.
