Mark Ramprakash: level one breach of the ECB's disciplinary code
Surrey batsman Mark Ramprakash has received three penalty points from the England and Wales Cricket Board for a disciplinary breach.
Ramprakash, 42, was reported to the ECB by umpires Nigel Llong and Jeff Evans for a level one breach - relating to "obscene, offensive or insulting" language - during Surrey's County Championship match against Worcestershire on April 19-22.
This incident follows a previous breach by Ramprakash of the fixed penalty system within the last two years, leaving him with six penalty points against his name.
The accumulation of nine or more penalty points in any two-year period triggers an automatic suspension.
