Dubai: Australia allrounder Moises Henriques has been fined 10 per cent of his match fee for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during day four of the first Test against India that culminated in the hosts' eight-wicket win in Chennai on Tuesday, an ICC press release said Wednesday.
The allrounder, who scored a fifty in both innings on his Test debut, was found to have breached Article 2.1.1 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel which relates to "breach of the ICC's Clothing and Equipment Regulations during an international match".
"The 26-year-old was found to have a manufacturer's logo on the chin strap of his helmet in breach of the specific requirements of the ICC's Clothing and Equipment Regulations. Henriques accepted the Level 1 charge and the sanction proposed by Chris Broad of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees," the press release said.
"The charge was brought by on-field umpires Marais Erasmus and Kumar Dharmasena, third umpire Vineet Kulkarni and Krishnaraj Srinath," it added.
Is the fine on Henriques justified?
