COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (AP) " Sri Lanka offspinner Sachithra Senanayake has been fined for using disparaging language at Australia captain David Warner during the first Twenty20.
The International Cricket Council says Senanayake was fined 30 percent of his fee for Tuesday's match by match referee Javal Srinath.
In the fifth over of the match, Senanayake dismissed Warner and made remarks that could have provoked a reaction from the latter. Senanayaake admitted his offense and accepted the sanction, the ICC added.
Australia went on to win the match by 85 runs. The second and last T20 is on Friday.
