Harbhajan on wrong side

Harbhajan Singh breached Code of Conduct for players:

ICC match referee Jeff Crowe slapped a fine of 25 per cent of the match fee on Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh for breach of Clause 1.6 of the Code of Conduct for players.The fine was imposed after a hearing at the team hotel on Wednesday evening following the off-spinner being reported for gesturing at South African batsman Ashwell Prince after dismissing him.
Crowe informed that Harbhajan pleaded guilty and apologised to the umpires immediately after the incident and later to player."This breach of Code of conduct invites a 50 per cent deduction of the match fee. But, since he expressed his apology, we have let him off with a warning and the 25 per cent fine," he explained. "He will be under scrutiny," he added.The match referee also said that if there was a repetition of the misdemeanour Harbhajan could even face the extreme punishment of a ban.
