Pakistan opener Ahmed Shehzad has been fined half of his match fee for pushing Sri Lanka's Tillakaratne Dilshan during Sunday's third one-day international.

Shehzad, 22, pleaded guilty to an International Cricket Council (ICC) charge of "inappropriate and deliberate physical contact between players".

He shoved the Sri Lanka opener on the shoulder on his way to scoring 81 runs as Pakistan won by 113 runs.

Pakistan go 2-1 up in the five-match series with the win in Sharjah.

Mohammad Hafeez hit an unbeaten 140 as Pakistan scored 326-5 in 50 overs before bowling out Sri Lanka for 213 in 44.4 overs.

The last two games of the series will take place in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday and Friday.
