The batsman was picked up by the television broadcast swearing loudly after his dismissal by Jimmy Neesham during the tourists’ series-clinching Super Over victory at Eden Park.
Bairstow’s 18-ball 47 had kept his side in contention to win the conclusive match, which had been reduced to 11 overs a side due to rain, and he was selected together with captain Eoin Morgan to bat out the Super Over.
Bairstow and Morgan pillaged 17 runs off the Super Over, while the Black Caps could only muster eight to hand an experimental England side a 3-2 series victory.
Bairstow already has two defect points on his record, having been reprimanded Start this year for swinging his bat at the stumps during a one- day international against Pakistan in May.
The points continue on a player’s record for a period of two years, with a total of four points in that time enough to force an automatic ban of one Test or two limited-overs games.
Bairstow will continue in New Zealand as part of the test squad for the upcoming two-test series with the Black Caps.
He was firstly omitted from the 15-man squad after a barren run with the bat in red-ball cricket, averaging just 25.91 in his last 20 tests, but an injury to Joe Denly saw him restained as cover.
He will keep on in the country for at least England’s two warm-up fixtures in Whangarei.
Denly continuous ligament injury in his right ankle ahead of the T20 series, but is hopeful of a return for the second of those two warm-up games.
The first test between New Zealand and England begins on November 21 at Mount Maunganui’s Bay Oval.
