The International Cricket Council has reprimanded Jonny Bairstow and deducted one demerit point after he was found guilty of using an ‘audible obscenity during an international game’.
The incident occurred in the final T20I against New Zealand where he was heard swearing after being dismissed by Jimmy Neesham in the seventh over.
Level 1 offence was charged against Bairstow by the match officials which includes a breach of article 2.3 of the ICC’s code of conduct. The England batsman accepted the charges immediately after the game which meant that no formal hearing was required.
The England batsman has two demerit points as he was previously reprimanded for swinging his bat on the stumps during an ODI against Pakistan in May.
