The dashing batsman was bowled out for 23 by Cobras' Sybrand Engelbrecht. While walking back to the pavilion, TV cameras captured a visibly unhappy Maxwell hitting something with his bat as soon as he had crossed the boundary ropes.

Maxwell admitted to the Level 1 offence (Article 1.2) of abuse of cricket equipment or clothing, ground equipment or fixtures and fittings. (Read: KXIP's Spirit Impresses George Bailey)

For Level 1 breaches of the CLT20 Code of behaviour, the Match Referee's decision is final and binding, a press release said on Monday.

Maxwell, who has been the batting star of the Punjab outfit, has not done that well with the bat in the ongoing CLT20 championship.

KXIP, who were chasing a score of 136 for victory, won the match by seven wickets.
