India’s off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin was fined 10% of his match fee for flaunting logos on his batting pads in breach of the ICC Code of Conduct during the third day’s play in the first cricket Test against Australia in Chennai on Sunday.

Ashwin was found to have breached Article 2.1.1 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel (the “Code”) which relates to “breach of the ICC’s Clothing and Equipment Regulations during an International Match”.

"The player exceeded the permitted number of manufacturers’ logos when he walked onto the field with four logos on the straps of his batting pads," said an International Cricket Council (ICC) statement Sunday.

Ashwin accepted the Level 1 charge and the sanction proposed by Chris Broad of the Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees.

The charge against Ashwin was brought by on-field umpires Marais Erasmus and Kumar Dharmasena and third umpire Vineet Kulkarni.
