New Zealand pace bowler Kyle Jamieson has been fined 15 percent of his match fee for breaching ICC’s code of conduct during the second Test against Bangladesh in Christchurch.

Jamieson’s disciplinary record also worsened as he had a demerit point added to it. It is his third offence in a two-year period which takes his tally to three demerit points.

Jamieson was found to have breached Article 2.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates 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,” the ICC’s statement read.

The level 1 breach in ICC’s code carries a minimum penalty of an official reprimand and a maximum penalty of 50 percent of the match fee along with one or two demerit points.

Kyle Jamieson’s incident occurred in the first innings

During the 41st over of Bangladesh’s innings in Christchurch, Jamieson dismissed Yasir Ali and celebrated the dismissal using inappropriate language. He was sanctioned by Jeff Crowe of the ICC’s Elite Panel of Match Referees with Jamieson accepting the offence.

On-field umpires Chris Gaffaney and Wayne Knights, third umpire Chris Brown, and fourth umpire Shaun Haig leveled the charge since then.

New Zealand went on to win the second Test on the third day of the Test by an innings and 117 runs. The series ended level at 1-1 with both teams sharing the trophy.
