Former England international Ramprakash, 42, was reported by the umpires during last week's LV= County Championship match against Worcestershire for a level one breach relating to 'obscene, offensive or insulting' language.

Ramprakash now has six penalty points to his name, with the accumulation of nine in any two-year period leading to a suspension.
