    Inzamam given suspended fine

    Pakistan vice-captain Inzamam-ul-Haq was handed a 25 percent match fee fine, suspended for six months, on Wednesday for criticising Sri Lankan players.

    ``Inzamam-ul-Haq has also been severely reprimanded. As a penalty, he has been handed a suspended 25 percent match fee fine applicable for six months,'' match referee Brian Hastings said in a statement after Pakistan beat Sri Lanka in the third and final test by 222 runs.

    Haq told reporters after his match-winning 138 on Tuesday that the Sri Lankan fielders sledged him throughout his innings and disturbed his concentration.

    ``There has to be a limit and I think they crossed it,'' Haq said.

    Hastings said: ``It's unfortunate that I have to penalise him after a wonderful innings. But he has breached the International Cricket Council (ICC) players' code of conduct by criticising the opposition.''


    He must have been hungry.
