The incident took place during the 96th over of the New Zealand innings after an outside edge off Latham’s bat went for a boundary. The comments were heard by the on-field umpires and also picked by the stump mic.
Post the day’s play, the bowler admitted to the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Match Referee.
Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.
