Dubai – South Africa's Faf du Plessis on Saturday became the latest player to be fined for ball tampering by the International Cricket Council (ICC).
The 29-year-old was caught rubbing the ball on the zip of his trousers during the third day's play in the second and final Test against Pakistan on Friday.
The on-field umpires warned South African skipper Graeme Smith, changed the ball and docked five penalty runs.
Later Friday, match referee David Boon of Australia summoned Du Plessis for a hearing and fined him 50 percent of his match fee on Saturday.
