Caddick gets warning for bird


MELBOURNE, Dec 28 AAP - English fast bowler Andy Caddick received an official reprimand here today after pleading guilty to an on-field misconduct charge during the fourth Ashes Test.

Caddick received a Bronx cheer from the crowd yesterday after 100 runs were recorded against his bowling and in response gave his knockers the finger.

Match referee Wasim Raja conducted a hearing this morning and Caddick apologised.

Raja said in a statement that he took into account Caddick's previous excellent record, but warned him about his future conduct.
