Wellington, Mar. 26: The New Zealand cricket team could face the prospect of being punished for an on field incident during Friday's quarterfinal match against South Africa.
According to a stuff. co. nz report, match referee Roshan Mahanama is investigating an altercation between the teams as South Africa was beginning to struggle at 122 for five.
A BBC blog revealed that there was flare up when New Zealand 12th man Kyle Mills ran on with the drinks, ''''and got involved in an altercation with the South African batsmen.
Mills appeared to say something to South African batsman Faf du Plessis when he came onto the pitch shortly after AB de Villiers had been run out.
That led to a confrontation between the two sets of players.
An ICC spokesman said Mahanama is "looking into an incident involving Daniel Vettori, Kyle Mills and Faf du Plessis."
A ruling is expected. (ANI)
