Kingston - Indian leg spinner Amit Mishra has been fined 10 percent of his match fee for showing dissent at an umpire's decision during the ongoing first Test against West Indies, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said on Wednesday.

The umpires brought the charge against Mishra for standing his ground for a long time after being given out caught behind and also gesturing to his arm guard before leaving the crease.

"Batsmen are taking too long to leave the crease after being given out. Whether it is just disappointment, it's still disrespectful and, as the code clearly states, unacceptable," ICC match referee Jeff Crowe said in a statement.

Mishra accepted the fine imposed on him after the second day's play ended on Tuesday, the statement said.
