Australian skipper Aaron Finch has recently received a reprimand for using abusive language on the stump mic.

The incident occurred during the 1st T20I at Perth on Sunday after Australia suffered a narrow loss to the English.

Finch was unhappy with his team’s performance and therefore used abusive language during the ninth over.

Finch has breached Article 2.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel.

This article states that ‘use of an obscenity during an international match’.

The Australian skipper has admitted to the offence and has been given an official reprimand from the ICC along with a demerit point against his disciplinary record.

In the last 24 months, this is Finch’s first offence but he still runs the risk of being suspended should he continue to behave like this.

According to the recent system, a player with four or more demerit points during the 24-month period receives a ban from ICC.

These demerit points convert into suspension points and thus a player could get into severe jeopardy.

So, if Finch gets more demerit points, he will not be able to play the remainder of the series and will also be banned from playing in the T20 World Cup.

The last two T20Is against England are at Canberra and Finch will be leading his side for these two games as well.

After this series, they will embark upon their World Cup campaign against New Zealand on the 22nd of October.
