Shane Warne could receive another suspension after being reported for breaching the code of behaviour in the Big Bash League.

Shane Warne has been reported for breaching the "spirit of the game" in a Big Bash League match, which could lead to another suspension.

The Melbourne Stars spinner did not name himself as captain for their semi-final game in order to avoid a suspension for allowing a slow over rate.

The 43-year-old was warned about the over rate earlier in the competition and would have received a suspension if his side were too slow again.

A statement from Cricket Australia reads: "Shane Warne has been reported for breaching Cricket Australia's code of behaviour.

"Under the heading 'Over Rates', the memo [sent to teams last month] stated that 'If a team's official captain is selected but not named as captain, this will be considered against the spirit of cricket and may attract a code of behaviour charge'.

"Warne had previously been issued with one strike for a slow over rate violation, with a second strike this season resulting in an automatic one-match suspension."

Warne has already missed one match after receiving a ban for an on-field altercation with Marlon Samuels.
