India paceman Ishant Sharma has been fined 15% of his match fee for an "aggressive gesture" to Andrew Symonds in Sunday's match against Australia.
Ishant Sharma's gesture was deemed "aggressive" by the ICC
Sharma pointed Symonds towards the pavilion after bowling him in a one-day international which Australia won.
Match referee Jeff Crowe said: "Sharma may have been provoked and this was his first offence - hence the penalty was at the lower end of the scale."
The International Cricket Council has a "zero-tolerance" stance on abuse.
Australia, India and Sri Lanka are competing in the triangular CB Series.
And Crowe added: "Hopefully the teams in these remaining matches in the CB Series will focus on the business of playing and entertaining."
Meanwhile, Australia have been fined for a slow over-rate by their bowlers in the same match.
Captain Ricky Ponting was docked 20% of his match fee, while his team-mates were fined 10% after they fell two overs behind their target.
It was the second time this year that the Australians had been fined for a slow over-rate against India.
They had been warned by Crowe over their over rate after their third Test defeat in Perth in January.
On a busy day for the match referee in Sydney, India captain Mahendra Dhoni has agreed not to use the wicket-keeping gloves he wore at the start of the innings against Australia.
The match officials found his gloves had extra illegal webbing between the thumb and the forefinger - and Dhoni quickly changed them.
