Twitter

Australian bowler Daniel Worrall took ball tampering to a new level after he scratched the image of a penis into a cricket pitch.

The South Australia player, 22, defaced the wicket during a Futures League game with Victoria on 14 March and has been suspended by Cricket Australia.

A CA statement read: "Worrall scratched an image of a penis and testicles into a wicket being prepared for a grade cricket final that coming weekend."

SA Cricket's high-performance manager Jamie Cox took a dim view of Worrall's puerile act.

"We are extremely disappointed in Daniel's actions, it's not in line with the behaviour we expect of a Redbacks player," Cox told the Sydney Morning Herald.

"The penis was this big."

Worrall pleaded guilty to the charge and received a suspension of four points, which means he will miss either two four-day matches or four one-day or Twenty20 matches.

He disputed the punishment but the penalty was upheld and he has 48 hours to appeal.
