Melbourne: Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh has been charged with showing dissent towards an umpiring decision during the first cricket Test against Australia, Cricket Australia said.

Yuvraj lingered at the crease and showed his disappointment at umpire Billy Bowden's decision to give him out caught behind off the bowling of Stuart Clark for a duck just before tea on day two.

The batsman will face a hearing with match referee Mike Proctor after Friday's third day's play at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, a Cricket Australia spokesman said.

Yuvraj faces a fine if he is found guilty at the hearing.
