West Indian batsman Darren Bravo has been fined 30 per cent of his match fee after being found guilty of a Level 1 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct.

The left-hander was reported by the match officials for approaching and verbally offending the Bangladesh batsman during the second Test in Saint Lucia.

After being warned several times to stop such behaviour, Bravo continued, and subsequent to being reported, contested the charge.

A formal hearing was then held by ICC match referee Roshan Mahanama, who found the player guilty.

Bravo was found to have breached Article 2.1.8 of the code of conduct which relates to behaviour contrary to the spirit of the game or conduct that brings the game into disrepute.

"The umpires felt that the player’s behaviour brought the game into disrepute and he was reminded of his responsibilities to extend respect at all times to both his opponent and to match officials," Mahanama said.

The West Indies went on to win the match by 296 runs.
