The Indian opener KL Rahul has been fined 15% of his match charges for showing question towards the umpires after his excusal on day three of the fourth Test against England at The Oval.

Rahul was found to have penetrated Article 2.8 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, identifying with “showing dissent at an umpire’s decision during an International Match.”
One bad mark point will likewise be added to Rahul’s disciplinary record as it was his first offence in a two year time frame.
The choice was made by on-field umpires Alex Wharf and Richard Illingworth, third umpire Michael Gough, and match arbitrator Chris Broad. Rahul acknowledged the charges evened out by the authorities and subsequently, there was no need of a conventional hearing.
Rahul’s knock assisted India with getting off to a strong beginning, as they lead England by 171 runs in front of day four, leaving the challenge scrumptiously ready.
Right now the visitors are at pretty good condition with lead of 171 runs and having 7 wickets in their hand. Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja will continue the innings from the day-4 and the Indian Team will definitely look to take the score for at least 350 runs from here.
