West Indies wicketkeeper-batsman Denesh Ramdin has been fined 20% of his match fee by the International Cricket Council for the way he celebrated his century on day four of the third Investec Test against England.

On completing just his second hundred at Edgbaston in 44 five-day matches, Ramdin held up a sheet of paper, which read: ‘Yeah Viv, Talk Nah’.

The move, thought to be a reaction to criticism Sir Viv Richards levelled at Ramdin last month, has found little favour with the ICC, who deemed the 27-year-old guilty of breaching their code of conduct.

He was charged this morning with a Level 1 offence, contrary to clause 2.1.8 (a), which relates to "conduct contrary to the spirit of the game".

There was no need for a formal hearing, however, with Ramdin pleading guilty to the charge and accepting the punishment.
