Christchurch: West Indies batsman Darren Bravo has been reprimanded for using obscenity while batting against Pakistan in their Pool B cricket World Cup match here on Saturday, an ICC press release said following the Caribbean team's 150-run victory.

The West Indian was found guilty of breaching Level 1 Article 2.1.4 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to "language or a gesture that is obscene, offensive or insulting during an International match".

Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand and a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player's match fee.

The offence happened in the first innings when the left-handed batsman used an audible obscenity whilst batting.

Bravo, who scored 49 before a hamstring injury forced him to retire hurt, admitted to the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee David Boon.

After that the Australian ruled out any possibility of a formal hearing.
