Sourav Ganguly and Shane Warne Fined 10% Match Fees for Misbehavior : Exclusive Footage

Shane Warne and Sourav Ganguly have each been fined 10 per cent of their match fees after their very public spat during Thursday night's Indian Premier League (IPL) match between the Kolkata Knight Riders and the Rajasthan Royals.

The controversy erupted when the Knight Riders' Ganguly asked for a Graeme Smith catch to be referred to the third umpire.

Warne criticised Ganguly's actions at the time and then repeated his comments after the game.

Match referee Farokh Engineer ruled that both players had breached the International Cricket Council's (ICC) code of conduct; Ganguly for asking the umpire to refer a decision and Warne for publicly criticising a match-related incident or official.

The umpire, Pratap Kumar, copped a one-game suspension because there was no need for him to accede to Ganguly's request.
