Indian paceman Ishant Sharma has been fined 15 per cent of his match fee for showing a "send-off finger" to Andrew Symonds after the Australian all-rounder was dismissed in the cricket tri-series ODI at SCG in Sydney.

The Delhi speedster, who has seized the imagination of cricket fans, was charged under ICC Code of Conduct 1.6 rule violation which pertains to showing disrespect to opposition player or team on the field.

The 19-year-old was earlier requisitioned of his match fee for showing his disappointment when Symonds was not given out at the controversial test match on the same ground last month.
