Vikram Solanki has received three penalty points under the ECB's discipline code, following an incident during Worcestershire's drawn County Championship fixture against Sussex at Hove on May 25-27.

Solanki was reported by Umpires David Millns and Nigel Llong for a Level Two breach of the code (throwing the ball at or near a player, umpire or official in an inappropriate and dangerous manner).

The points he has received will remain on his record for a period of two years. The accumulation of nine or more penalty points in any two-year period will result in an automatic suspension.
