Josh Hazlewood fined after pleading guilty to dissent
CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand (AP) Australia fast bowler Josh Hazlewood has been fined 15 percent of his match fee or about $2,300 after pleading guilty to dissent on the fourth day of the second cricket test against New Zealand.
Hazlewood reacted angrily when his appeal for lbw against Kane Williamson was refused after being referred to the television umpire. Replays showed the ball had hit Williamson's bat before striking his toe.
Hazlewood was captured by television microphones angrily questioning the third umpire's decision.
Cricket Australia said Hazlewood was charged with dissent by match referee Chris Broad and immediately pleaded guilty.
