Sydney:

An Australian cricketer was suspended on Tuesday for a bizarre incident in which he scratched the image of male genitals into the pitch.

South Australian paceman Daniel Worrall 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."
