New Zealand all-rounder Daryl Mitchell has been fined 15 percent of his match fee for breaching the ICC code of conduct during the first Test against West Indies at Seddon Park, Hamilton. He is said have been fined for use of an audible obscenity during his side’s innings and 34-run win. 

According to the ICC media release, “Mitchell was found to have breached Article 2.3 of the ICC code, which relates to “use of an audible obscenity during an international match”. In addition to this, one demerit point has been added to his disciplinary record.

The incident occurred in the 62nd over on Saturday when Mitchell used inappropriate language as Jason Holder was running between the wickets and in close proximity to him.”

Match referee Jeff Crowe imposed the sanctions after charges were levelled by on-field umpires Chris Gaffaney, Wayne Knights, and TV umpire Christopher Brown.

Level 1 offence includes a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum of 50 percent of match fee and one or two demerit points. 

New Zealand lead the two-match series 1-0. New Zealand captain Kane Williamson stole the show with his career-best 251 in the first Test. The second Test will be played in Wellington from December 10.
