Allrounder Tim Armstrong and wicketkeeper Tom Triffitt were withdrawn from Western Australia Under-23's Futures League match against Queensland Under-23 for disciplinary reasons.

Triffitt was arrested by Queensland Police in the early hours of Wednesday and was charged with two counts of stealing and one count of wilful damage, the Western Australia Cricket Association said in a release. Armstrong was not charged. Both players are part of the Perth Scorchers squad in the Big Bash League; the Scorchers play the tournament final against the Sydney Sixers on February 5.

The WACA management will meet with both players before determining an appropriate course of action, the release said.
