Brian Lara is to be disciplined for storming into Australia's dressing-room to protest against his dismissal in the second Test against the West Indies this week. The West Indies management have apologised for Lara's heated outburst during a confrontation with the Australian coach, Geoff Marsh, at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Tuesday.

"I think he realises he stepped out of line and we'll deal with that in-house. We have ways of doing it," the tour manager, Clive Lloyd, said. "Brian is vice-captain and has to play by the rules."

Lara was dismissed for one when he edged a catch to wicketkeeper Ian Healy on the final day. Healy tumbled forward to take the catch but television replays raised doubt as to whether the ball carried. Lara was also fined for misconduct on the West Indies' tour of England last year.
