All-rounders John Mooney and Darren Sammy both admitted Level 1 offences for swearing audibly during Ireland's World Cup win over West Indies in Nelson on Monday, and were fined 30 per cent of their match fees.

Mooney lost his temper when a catch was put down by one of his Irish team-mates, and former Windies captain Sammy voiced his irritation while batting.

Both players accepted the sanction. All Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand and a maximum penalty of a 50 per cent match fee.
