England fast bowler Andrew Caddick has been officially reprimanded and warned as to his future conduct after being found guilty of a breach of the International Cricket Council's (ICC) Code of Conduct.

Caddick was charged with a Level 1 offence, point 1.4 which sites as a punishable offence: "Using language that is obscene, offensive or insulting and/or the making of an obscene gesture."

The charge related to an incident during the 14th over of the second day's play of the fourth Orange Test match against Australia (27 December) when Caddick was seen to make a gesture.

The hearing took place on Saturday morning (28 December) and was attended by ICC match referee Wasim Raja, umpires Dave Orchard, Russell Tiffin and Darrell Hair, England coach Duncan Fletcher and Caddick.

Wasim Raja said: "At the hearing Andrew Caddick admitted the offence and apologised for his action.

"Taking into account his previous excellent disciplinary record I decided the appropriate punishment is an official reprimand and also a warning as to his future conduct."

A Level 1 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct carries with it a minimum penalty of an official reprimand and a maximum penalty of a fine of 50 percent of a player or official's match fee.
