Australia spinner Adam Zampa has been reprimanded by the ICC for a breach of their code of conduct during the World Cup holders' win over West Indies at Trent Bridge on Thursday.

Zampa, 27, was found to have breached Article 2.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to using "audible obscenities" in an international match.

The incident occurred at the end of the 29th over of the West Indies innings when the legspinner was heard using an audible obscenity by on-field umpires Marais Erasmus and Chris Gaffaney.

The Australian admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Jeff Crowe of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC and has consequently been handed a formal warning, with one demerit point having been added to his disciplinary record.

Zampa took one wicket for 58 against West Indies

There is no immediate threat of a ban for the 27-year-old though as players are only banned when they reach four or more demerit points within a 24-month period.

Zampa took the wicket of Nicholas Pooran and went for 58 runs in his 10 overs as Australia recorded their second straight win of the tournament with victory over Jason Holder's men in Nottingham.
