COLOMBO:  Pakistan batsman Umar Akmal was fined 50 per cent of his match fee for an "offensive" snub of the umpires' authority during his team's 16-run defeat to Sri Lanka in the World Twenty semi-finals on Thursday. The incident took place in the 17th over of Pakistan's innings when Umar, who was the non-striker, ignored both on-field umpires' request and went ahead to change his batting gloves.
