Gros Islet: England's bowling coach Kevin Shine and Jeremy Snape a psychologist for spin bowlers Monty Panesar and Jamie Dalrymple who went drinking with players 48 hours before their World Cup match against Canada, were fined on Tuesday.

The two were in the Rumours nightclub with five players, hours after England's six-wicket loss to New Zealand on Friday. Fast bowlers James Anderson, Liam Plunkett and Jon Lewis, wicketkeeper Paul Nixon and batsman Ian Bell were fined on Saturday.

England allrounder Andrew Flintoff was also briefly at Rumours, and later took a small pedal boat out into the ocean while drunk. He was suspended for England's 51-run win over Canada on Sunday.

Shine, a permanent member of the staff, was also warned about his future conduct.

The decision to fine the two staffers came after meetings on Tuesday invovling coach Duncan Fletcher, England and Wales Cricket Board deputy chief executive Hugh Morris and the two coaches. AP
