South Australian paceman Daniel Worrall, 22, was slapped with a penalty of four suspension points, which is equal to two four-day matches or four one-day or T20 games.

He was reported for unbecoming conduct and bringing the game into disrepute after the incident last Friday during a Futures League match between South Australia and Victoria. Worrall scratched the image into a wicket due to be used for another match.

"We are extremely disappointed in Daniel's actions; it is not in line with the behaviour we expect," said South Australia Cricket Association high performance general manager Jamie Cox. 

"We do believe this out of character for Daniel; he regrets his behaviour and has accepted the penalty."
