Australia spinner Nathan Lyon was fined 15 per cent of his match fee for his reaction following the run out of South Africa batsman AB de Villiers in the first Test.

Australia won the first match, but the tourists were criticised for their ebullient celebration of the dramatic run out of De Villiers in the second innings. De Villiers was run out for nought after being involved in a mix-up with opening batsman Aiden Markram, with Lyon, who had knocked off the bails, dropping the ball towards the sprawled batsman as he ran over to join ecstatic celebrations.
