Travis Head has been docked 15 per cent of his match fee from the first Ashes Test for swearing at himself.
Stump microphones picked up Head’s foul-mouthed self-flagellation at the Gabba, which came during his man-of-the-match knock of 152.
Head was booked for using an “audible obscenity” after missing a delivery from Ben Stokes.
There was no formal hearing, with the South Australian accepting the sanction handed down by match referee David Boon.
The punishment, which included a demerit point, is the same that was meted out to Stokes in 2020 for an abusive tirade he directed at a member of the crowd during a Test in South Africa.
Tim Paine was also fined the same amount at the SCG in 2020-21, when he appealed for some “f***ing consistency” in a rant directed at on-field umpire Paul Wilson.
