Match referee Chris Broad has spoken to Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Aamer [ Images ] about his future conduct after he brushed against Ricky Ponting [ Images ] following his dismissal of Australia's [ Images ] captain at Lord's on Day 1 of the first Test on Tuesday.
Aamer, who collided with vice-captain Michael Clarke [ Images ] in a Twenty20 [ Images ] international last week, was racing down the pitch to celebrate with his team mates after Ponting was smartly caught at short-leg for 26.
The International Cricket Council [ Images ] said on Wednesday that while the umpires had not felt the incident warranted any formal action, it was the second time in two matches that Aamer had made contact with a batsman after taking his wicket.
"Aamer is a young, exciting, talented player full of enthusiasm for this great sport and that is to be celebrated and nurtured," Broad said.
"But there are a few things he still has to learn in relation to how to conduct himself on the field of play. I told him that when he takes a wicket, he should celebrate with his team mates rather than getting himself into the personal space of the outgoing batsman.
"He accepted it graciously and undertook to avoid a repeat occurrence. As far as we are concerned the issue is now closed."
