Lyon set for fine after AB 'ball dropping' incident

Can the Proteas will take the first Test against Australia to the fifth day? WATCH: Australia cannot hide delight at running out AB de Villiers

Australia spinner Nathan Lyon has been fined 15 per cent of his match fee for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during the fourth day of the first Test against South Africa in Durban.

Australia wrapped up a 118-run win on the fifth day of the first Test against South Africa on Monday but the result is likely to be overshadowed by an ugly bust-up between David Warner and Quinton de Kock.

Aiden Markram turned down a run early in South Africa's pursuit of 417, leaving De Villiers diving for the crease as Lyon whipped off the bails. Lyon, on the other hand, dropped the ball in AB's direction as he lay on the ground after a desperate dive.

The off-spinner, after knocking over the stumps to run out De Villiers, dropped the ball on the batsman as he ran to celebrate with his teammates.

Lyon contacted de Villiers on Sunday night to apologise, telling the veteran there was no malice intended.

Warner is expected to avoid sanction for that emotional celebration, but he's likely to face punishment for Sunday's staircase stoush with Quinton de Kock at tea.

"CA is aware of reports of an incident between players in Durban", a Cricket Australia spokesperson said.

The news may have been confusing to many, which is why the company has given a more detailed explanation. Users can now upgrade such devices to the full version of Windows 10 for a $50 fee.

Former South Africa captain Graeme Smith labelled Lyon's actions unnecessary. "The Aussies were pretty fired up at that time pushing for a victory. On both sides! But agreed not a good look".

The footage showed Warner pointing and directing a verbal barrage at De Kock before he was restrained and pulled away by his team-mates.

"But he [Lyon] is an experienced cricketer".

"We've got used to Davey over the years. It's best just to let him be", Smith further added. I think he'll probably say it was unnecessary himself.

"He can be a bit of a fool at times".

"As an outside observer, I think you would find that a little bit off-putting at times, a little bit bad taste at times", Gilchrist told SEN Radio. The Australian has accepted the charges and has also apologised to AB de Villiers for the same.

Australia have been in command for most of the test after scoring 351 in their first innings and then bowling South Africa out cheaply for 162 on a slow wicket.
