South Africa's Tabraiz Shamsi has been fined 50 per cent of his match fee after admitting to a Level 2 breach of the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) code of conduct during the tournament's final on Saturday while playing for St Kitts & Nevis Patriots against Trinbago Knight Riders at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Tarouba.

The incident happened when the left-arm wrist spinner showed what the match officials described as serious dissent when an LBW decision was turned down off the last ball of the 13th over.

Shamsi, 27, admitted to the offence and accepted the sanction of a fine of 50 per cent of his match fee.

He took 2-20 off his allotted four overs, but the Knight Riders won by three wickets in a dramatic fashion.
