South African captain Faf du Plessis will play in the third Test in Adelaide against Australia after escaping a suspension following a hearing with the ICC on Tuesday afternoon.
Du Plessis was found guilty of applying an artificial substance to the ball during the second Test in Hobart, and was fined 100% of his match fee from that Test.
In addition to being fined, the Proteas batsman has also been handed three demerit points.
If du Plessis reaches four or more points in a 24-month period, they will be converted into suspension points and the 32-year-old will be banned.
Two suspension points equals a one-match Test ban or a two-match ban from ODIs or T20 Internationals, whichever comes first.
