Cricket: Blackcap Kyle Jamieson fined for 'offensive language' outburst against Bangladesh

Blackcaps bowler Kyle Jamieson has been fined 15 percent of his match fee and handed a demerit point after using inappropriate language in New Zealand's victory over Bangladesh in Christchurch.

Jamieson, 27, was found to have used inappropriate language after taking the wicket of Bangladesh's Yasir Ali on day two of the second test - which the Blackcaps won by an innings and 117 runs at Hagley Oval.

Using inappropriate language breaches Article 2.5 of the ICC's code of conduct for players and player support personnel, relating to "using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batter upon his/her dismissal during an International Match".

All four match umpires agreed with the charge against Jamieson, levelled by match referee Jeff Crowe.

The incident is Jamieson's third offence since his debut in February 2020, also after outbursts against Pakistan in December 2020, and Bangladesh in March 2021.

Jamieson has accepted the sanctions, and admitted to the offence.

That takes Jamieson's total of demerit points to three in the space of 24 months, with suspensions imposed when a player incurs four points.
