Pakistan wicket-keeper Rashid Latif has been reported to the International Cricket Council (ICC) for a racial slur on his Australian counterpart Adam Gilchrist.

The incident occurred during Pakistan's innings in Tuesday's World Cup match at the Wanderers when Latif turned around to Glichrist and reportedly shouted an obscene racial remark.

Gilchrist informed his team management about the remark, which in turned reported the matter to the ICC's match referee Clive Lloyd.

A hearing into the matter is expected to take place again later today.

Latif's abuse of Gilchrist came a few hours after Pakistani captain Waqar Younis was ordered out of the attack for sending down a vicious beamer at Australia's century-maker Andrew Symonds.
