Zimbabwe's all-rounder Sikandar Raza has been fined 15 per cent of his match fee for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during the third One-Day International against Afghanistan in Sharjah, the world cricket governing body said on Wednesday.

In the ODI held on Tuesday, which Afghanistan won by six wickets, Raza was found to have violated Article 2.1.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to "showing dissent at an umpire's decision during an international match".

Notably, the incident happened in the 23rd over of Zimbabwe's innings when the 31-year-old questioned the umpire's decision by raising his arms before leaving the crease after a short time when he was adjudged leg before.

"After the match, Raza admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Richie Richardson of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees. As such, there was no need for a formal hearing," the ICC said.
