Sydney: Australian fast bowler Clint McKay has become the 11th player from a domestic side to be pulled into line for breaching Cricket Australia`s (CA) code of conduct after copping a breach notice for using an `audible obscenity` during a Sheffield Shield match.

In another clear sign the governing body wants to improve on-field behavioural standards, McKay received the notice during the second day of his side Victoria `s match against South Australia at the MCG.

According to, a CA statement said that McKay was reported by the umpires for breaching Article 2.1.4 - using language or a gesture that is obscene, offensive or insulting during a match.

The report mentioned that Australian Test captain Michael Clarke, Western Australia`s Ashton Agar and South Australia pair Tom Cooper and Adam Zampa are amongst those to be reprimanded and/or fined this season for dissent or obscene language.

McKay`s captain Matthew Wade was last month suspended for one Shield match after being charged with pitch tampering, the report added.
