New Zealand dynamic all-rounder Colin Munro is set to miss this week's Plunkett Shield game after being suspended for using 'inappropriate language' in a domestic match last week.
A code of management hearing which was held on March 8 found the left-handed batsmen had used inappropriate language during the game between Auckland and Canterbury at Eden Park, marking his third rift of the code in the past three years.
"Given [Munro's] previous record in this area, [the hearing panel] handed down a one-match suspension". New Zealand Cricket declared.
The Kolkata Knight Riders all-rounder had previously breached the code of management in a Ford Trophy game last match, and before that in November 2014.
The 29 years old all-rounder, returned to the Auckland side after being dropped from the national team.
Collin Munro's absence will come as a blow for Auckland team, who are currently placed fourth position on the points table.
