Senanayake fined for Warner send-off


Sri Lanka spinner Sachithra Senanayake has been fined 30 per cent of his match fee for the send-off he gave David Warner in Australia's crushing Twenty20 victory in Pallekele.

Senanayake dished out verbals to Warner after bowling Australia's stand-in skipper in the first game of the two-match series.

The International Cricket Council charged Senanayake with breaching its code of conduct and the 31-year-old accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Javagal Srinath.

Glenn Maxwell blasted 145 not out off just 65 balls as Australia posted a world record T20 total of 263-3, with Sri Lanka making 178-9 in reply to go down by 85 runs.
