COLOMBO - India's Ishant Sharma Sunday was fined 65 percent of his match fee for on-field misconduct on two occasions during the ongoing second Test against Sri Lanka in Colombo. Sharma was charged with breaching provisions of the players' code of conduct which relates to ‘using language, actions or gestures which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batsman upon his dismissal," the ICC said in a statement. The lanky seamer was fined 15 per cent for provoking Lahiru Thirimanne and another 50 percent for repeating the act against Dinesh Chandimal three overs later.
