Sydney: Former Test leg spinner Stuart MacGill was on Thursday fined 1,500 Australian Dollars ($ 750) after being found guilty of breaching two clauses of the Australian Cricket Board's Code of Behaviour.
 A New South Wales cricket spokesman said that MacGill was fined 750 Australian Dollars ($ 375) for each of the charges, which related to showing dissent and crude and abusive behaviour during the second day's play of the interstate match between New South Wales and Tasmania here Thursday. MacGill was placed on report after he vented his anger at umpire David Brandon, who had turned down an lbw appeal off his bowling. Code of Behaviour commissioner Terry Buddin found MacGill guilty of the charges but dismissed a charge of unbecoming behaviour.
