Indian cricket’s enfant terrible S. Sreesanth has been given a “final warning” by the BCCI to mend his on-field behaviour, failing which he would be suspended from domestic matches.

The latest Board missive, dated October 5, was sent to Kerala Cricket Association (KCA) secretary T. C. Mathews to be handed to the player.

BCCI has warned Sreesanth against repeating the on-field misbehaviour he showed during the recent Irani Cup championship against Mumbai in Nagpur.

“You are hereby given a final warning to ensure that you do not violate the BCCI Code of Conduct. Any repetition of such behaviour will be dealt with severely by the BCCI including suspension from domestic cricket matches,” the letter read.

“As an international cricketer, you have to set a good example for the youngsters who watch and follow the game,” it said.

“We have to bring to your kind notice that repeatedly you have been violating the BCCI Code of Conduct and your behaviour on the field of play is against spirit of the game of cricket,” it added.

Sreesanth, playing for Rest of India team, was fined 60 percent of his match fee for abusing Mumbai all-rounder Dhawal Kulkarni, who was also warned.
