Sri Lanka's Tillakaratne Dilshan has been fined 20% of his match fee for breaching the ICC code of conduct during his side's World Twenty20 victory over New Zealand on Monday.

The all-rounder took exception to the umpire's decision when he was given out after being caught behind off the bowling of Trent Boult.

The 37-year-old rubbed his elbow following the dismissal, indicating that the ball did not touch his gloves.

Dilshan avoided a formal hearing after accepting the charge.

Sri Lanka beat New Zealand by 59 runs to take them through to the semi-finals of the tournament.
