India batsman Suresh Raina has been fined 25 percent of his match fee for showing dissent on the opening day of the second Test against West Indies in Barbados.
Raina, 24, was punished for his reaction to being given out caught at short-leg off the bowling of leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo for 53 by umpire Asad Rauf.
"What Suresh did was a clear breach of the code, something the player himself has accepted," ICC match referee Chris Broad said in a statement.
"There is a fine line between showing disappointment at a dismissal and demonstrating dissent but on this occasion Suresh was well over that line and his behaviour was unacceptable."
Raina pleaded guilty and accepted the fine imposed on him after the end of play, the statement added.
India were bowled out for 201 on day one before reducing West Indies to 30-3 in reply at stumps.
