London: Australia coach Darren Lehmann was fined 20 percent of his match fee by the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Thursday after accusing England's Stuart Broad of "blatant cheating".

The 27-year-old Broad angered Australia during England's narrow 14-run first Test win at Trent Bridge when he refused to walk after a thick edge deflected off the wicketkeeper's gloves to slip.

Victory sent England on their way to taking an unbeatable 3-0 series lead in the Ashes heading into the ongoing fifth and final Test at The Oval, which started on Wednesday.
