New Delhi -The Indian cricket board has slapped a $50,000 fine on Australian bowling legend Shane Warne for his part in a bust-up with a local administrator after an IPL game, a statement said Wednesday.

Warne, captain of the Rajasthan Royals team in the Indian Premier League, was involved in an angry exchange with Sanjay Dixit, secretary of the Rajasthan state cricket association, following his team's defeat at home last week.

The leg-spinner later apologised for "any distress" his action may have caused but the Rajasthan association still lodged a complaint with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), owners of the money-spinning IPL.

Warne and Dixit were summoned for a hearing in Mumbai on Tuesday before a disciplinary commission comprising IPL chairman Chirayu Amin and former player Ravi Shastri.

In a statement, the BCCI said the disciplinary commission "regards the public criticism of Mr Dixit as being a serious breach by Mr Warne of his IPL playing contract".

"However, at the same time, the commission also recognises that Mr Warne has apologised to Mr Dixit, and that the incident occurred just after the match."

It concluded: "The commission has decided to impose a fine of US$50,000 upon Mr Warne."
