Hales fined for 'inappropriate comments' in 4th test
LONDON (AP) England opener Alex Hales has been fined 15 percent of his match fee for breaching the ICC code of conduct during the fourth and final test match against Pakistan.
The ICC said in a statement on Friday that Hales visited the third umpire's room after he was adjudged caught at square leg and out for 6 at the Oval. Hales ''made some inappropriate comments'' while he was leaving the room during the first day's play on Thursday , the ICC said.
Hales admitted the offense and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Richie Richardson of the West Indies.
