BEIJING, Nov. 7 (Xinhua) -- Shanghai Port midfielder Cai Huikang and Shandong Taishan strikers Moises and Fei Nanduo have all been banned for four games after being involved in a fracas in a Chinese Super League (CSL) match.

All three players were also fined 40,000 RMB yuan, the Chinese Football Association said in a statement on Tuesday.

Cai and Moises were sent off for their roles in a mass brawl which erupted in the 39th minute of the CSL game held last Sunday.

Cai was expelled for grabbing an oppositon player by the throat, while Moises was found guilty of hitting, the CFA said in its verdict.

Fei got his marching order in the 74th minute of that game after pushing a Shanghai player.

The CFA said it also has slapped a 100,000-yuan fine on both Shanghai and Shandong clubs.
