Jos Buttler has received an official reprimand over his conduct during Sunday's second ODI between England and Bangladesh in Dhaka.
The England skipper was involved in a fiery exchange with the Bangladesh fielders following his dismissal in the closing stages of the match.
Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza and batsman Sabbir Rahman have both been fined 20 per cent of their match fees.
Bangladesh won by 34 runs to level the series at 1-1 after a thrilling contest that was overshadowed by the confrontation after the stand-in captain had been given out lbw on review.
Buttler was heading off the field before he turned back, apparently incensed by a comment from a Bangladesh player during their exuberant celebrations.
The umpires were forced to intervene and there were further ugly scenes at the end of the contest with Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow involved in another spat with some of the home players as the teams shook hands.
The teams will play the decider on Wednesday, live on Sky Sports 2HD from 9am.
Both the Bangladesh players were found to have breached Article 2.1.7 of the ICC Code of Conduct which relates to "using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batsman upon his/her dismissal during an international match".
Buttler was guilty of violating Article 2.1.4, which deals with "using language or a gesture that is obscene, offensive or insulting during an international match".
The three players admitted the offences and accepted the sanctions proposed by Javagal Srinath on the match referee panel.
The charges were levelled by on-field umpires Aleem Dar and Sharfuddoula, third umpire Marais Erasmus and fourth umpire Anisur Rahman.
Srinath said: "The Bangladesh players overstepped in their celebration of Jos Buttler's wicket, which prompted an inappropriate reaction from the dismissed batsman and required the on-field umpires' intervention.
"We all want to see high intensity on the field of play, but only as long as it is not provoking or antagonising or disrespecting the opponent."
