The Herald Sun reported that the incident took place a fortnight ago but the matter was not resolved by CA until Thursday. CA has sanctioned Hauritz but it has refused to release any details of the penalty.

"By his own admission, Nathan said he was immature and silly. He had a few drinks. The incident occurred.

Nathan was struck by a patron. Nathan has chosen not to lay any charges, which is his right," CA general manager of cricket operations Michael Brown was quoted as saying by the The Herald Sun.

"We've investigated the matter and determined the matter has been resolved internally," Brown said.
