Southee fined after confrontation

The New Zealand pacer Tim Southee has been fined for breaching the Code of Conduct following a confrontation with Kirk Edwards on the second day of the second Test against West Indies in Port-of-Spain.

The incident occurred around the 31st over of West Indies' first innings and a release from the ICC said Southee ignored previous warnings from the on-field umpires, Ian Gould and Rod Tucker.

The over was bowled by legspinner Ish Sodhi, who dismissed Edwards for 55 off the third ball.

Southee was fined 30 percent of his match fee by the match referee Chris Broad after he pleaded guilty to breaching Article 2.1.8, that relates to "conduct contrary to the spirit of the game".
