ROSEAU, Dominica (CMC) – West Indies head coach Stuart Law has been slapped with a fine by International Cricket Council (ICC) match referee Chris Broad for showing dissent during the tense final day of the decisive third Test against Pakistan which ended here Sunday.

Upset over the dismissal of wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich in the second session, the Australian went to the umpire's room and proceeded to question the third umpire over his ruling to confirm the on-field umpire's initial decision to give Dowrich out.

According to the ICC, Law then left the room “while making an inappropriate comment.” He pleaded guilty to the charge of “showing dissent at an umpire's decision during an international match” and was subsequently fined 25 per cent of his match fee.

“In addition to the fine, one demerit point has been added to Law's disciplinary record,” the ICC said.

Dowrich was sixth out for two with the score on 93, adjudged caught at short leg off leg-spinner Yasir Shah. The batsman immediately reviewed the decision but replays proved inconclusive, and the decision was upheld.

West Indies went on to lose the contest by 101 runs in the day's penultimate over, to concede the three-match series 2-1.
