England v West Indies: 3rd Investec Test - Day Four

The International Cricket Council have fined West Indies wicketkeeper-batsman Denesh Ramdin 20 percent of his match fee for the distasteful manner in which he celebrated his century in the third test against England on Sunday.

Shortly after completing a fine century on day four at Edgbaston, Ramdin removed a sheet of paper, on which the statement 'Yeah Viv, Talk Nah' was written, from his pocket and held it up for all to see.

The protest, thought to be a reaction to criticism Sir Viv Richards leveled at Ramdin last month, didn't please the game's governing body, with the 27-year-old found to have breached their code of conduct.

He was charged with a Level 1 offence, contrary to clause 2.1.8 (a), which relates to "conduct contrary to the spirit of the game". There was no need for a formal hearing after Ramdin pleaded guilty to the charge.

England wrapped up a two-nil series win in the three-match series after the third and final Test ended in a rain-affected draw in Birmingham on Monday.
