Kyle Jamieson has copped a fine and a demerit point following New Zealand's thumping victory over Bangladesh in the second Test in Christchurch.
Jamieson was found to have breached Level 1 of ICC code of conduct for players and officials. As a result, he was fined 15 percent of his match fees. 
The right-arm fast bowler was found to have breached Article 2.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to "using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batter upon his/her dismissal during an International Match."
Jamieson used inappropriate language after dismissing Yasir Ali in the 41st over of Bangladesh's first innings on the second day.
The ICC said, "Jamieson admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Jeff Crowe of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees and ratified by the ICC Cricket Operations department as per the COVID-19 interim playing regulations. There was no need for a formal hearing.
"On-field umpires Chris Gaffaney and Wayne Knights, third umpire Chris Brown and fourth umpire Shaun Haig levelled the charge."
This is the third offence by Jamieson in a 24-month period having been already committed the same in the 2020 Boxing Day Test versus Pakistan and in an ODI against Bangladesh in March 2021. It takes his demerit points tally to three.
