Bangladesh fast bowler Al-Amin Hossain has been fined 15 per cent of his match fee for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during his side's ICC World Twenty20 game against Australia.

He was found to have breached Article 2.1.4 of the Code of Conduct relating to "using language or a gesture that is obscene, offensive or insulting during an International match".

The incident occurred during the 12th over of Australia's run chase when Al-Amin reacted aggressively towards Warner having dismissed him.

He pleaded guilty to the charge and accepted the fine imposed by match referee Ranjan Madugalle.

"Celebrating the fall of a wicket should be done in a manner which is not abusive or disrespectful to the opponent," Madugalle said.

The charge was brought against Al-Amin by umpires Kumar Dharmasena, Marais Erasmus, Ian Gould and Richard Kettleborough.

Australia went on to win the match by seven wickets.
