Pakistan opening batsman Ahmed Shehzad has been fined 50 per cent of his match fee for pushing Sri Lanka batsman Tillakaratne Dilshan during the third One Day International at Sharjah.

The International Cricket Council said Monday that Shehzad pleaded guilty to Level 2 breach of the code of conduct which relates to “inappropriate and deliberate physical contact between players in the course of play during an international match.”

Shehzad was involved in a debate with Dilshan during the 19th over of Sri Lanka’s run-chase on Sunday when he pushed the Sri Lanka opening batsman’s shoulder.

Shehzad scored 81 runs and featured in a match-winning 160-run partnership with Mohammad Hafeez as Pakistan won by 113 runs and took a 2-1 lead in the five-match series.
