Cricket Australia (CA) on Monday fined spinner Ashton Agar 25 per cent of his match fee for breaching the Code of Behaviour during Western Australia’s Sheffield Shield match against the Victorian Bushrangers at the WACA.

Australia’s Agar was reported by umpires for breaching Article 2.1.3 — showing dissent at an umpire’s decision. The incident occurred while Agar was bowling during the Bushrangers’ second innings, CA said in statement.

Agar accepted the sanction proposed by the match referee. A Code of Behaviour hearing was not required. This was Agar’s first offence in the past 18 months.
