Blackcaps vs Bangladesh: Trent Boult fined for swearing during ODI victory

Blackcaps fast bowler Trent Boult has been fined for swearing during Saturday's one-day victory over Bangladesh in Christchurch.

New Zealand completed a comfortable eight-wicket win over the visitors at Hagley Oval to secure overall honours in the three-match series, with one encounter still to play on Wednesday.

But the International Cricket Council has docked Boult 15 percent of his match fee for misconduct, namely "use of audible obscenity during an international match".

He also incurred one demerit point for his first offence since the ICC introduced the revised code of conduct in September 2016.

Boult pleaded guilty to the charge of using audible obscenities twice during the Blackcaps' innings in the field, where he took 1/49 off his 10 overs.

Bangladesh batsman Mahmudullah was also fined 10 percent of his fee for "abuse of cricket equipment or clothing, ground equipment or fixtures and fittings during an international match".

Mahmudullah hit the picket fence with his bat, after he was caught by wicketkeeper Tom Latham, off the bowling of Todd Astle, for seven in his team's inning.

When Bangladesh shocked New Zealand at the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy, Mahmudullah starred with an unbeaten 102 runs and a 224-run partnership with Shakib Al Hasan.
