Lahore: Four spectators have been arrested for making racist remarks towards a South African player and official during the final day's proceedings of the second Test, the Pakistan Cricket Board said on Friday.

"The four have been arrested by the police and they are in lock-up right now," Nadeem Akram, the PCB's human resources manager, told reporters.

He said the alleged incidents took place in the Imran Khan enclosure of the Gaddafi stadium. The spectators made lewd gestures and racially motivated remarks towards South African security officer Faisul Nagel and a player.

Butt fined for umpiring outburst: Pakistan's vice captain Salman Butt has been fined 50 per cent of his match fee for his outburst against some of the umpiring decisions in the Test series against South Africa, reports Reuters from Lahore.

International Cricket Council (ICC) match referee Alan Hurst said Butt had been fined after being found guilty of public criticism and inappropriate comment on a match-related incident or match official.

Butt criticised some umpiring decisions on Thursday during the second Test, saying they had gone against Pakistan.
