South Africa captain Faf du Plessis has been fined 50 per cent of his match fee for showing dissent at an umpiring decision during his team's eight-wicket win over Sri Lanka in the last league game at the World Twenty20.

The International Cricket Council announced yesterday that du Plessis had been fined for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct for the second time in a 12-month period for a "level one offence."

Du Plessis did not leave the crease immediately after being adjudged leg before wicket on 31 and showed dissent by looking at his bat and shaking his head.

His first offence was during a one-day international against India at Chennai in October.

A third within 12 months of the first could earn him a suspension.
