Proteas bowler Sisanda Magala has been handed a demerit point for his actions during the fourth T20 against Pakistan at Centurion last week.
The incident occurred in the 19th over of Pakistan’s innings when Magala hit the stumps with his hand, dislodging the bails at the bowler’s end after being hit for a six.
It was a hugely frustrating moment for the hosts that saw Magala hit for a six off a free-hit after he had bowled a no-ball.
According to an ICC statement, Magala "admitted the offence and accepted the sanction."
There was thus no need for an official hearing.
Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand and a maximum penalty of 50 percent of a player’s match fee.
The Proteas went on to lose the match in the final over while they also lost the four-match series 3-1.
