Bairstow could clearly be heard shouting “f*** off” in the aftermath of his seventh-over dismissal to Jimmy Neesham.
The batsman has been handed one demerit point under the ICC’s disciplinary code following a review of the incident, which took place during the tourists’ series-clinching Super Over win at Eden Park.
Bairstow struggled for runs in the series, but was pleased with his contribution in the deciding game, scoring 47 from just 18 deliveries.
It is the second time Bairstow has received such a sanction this year, having also picked up a demerit point for swinging his bat at the stumps during a one-day international against Pakistan in May.
The points remain on a player’s record for a period of two years, with a total of four points in that time enough to force a ban of one Test or two limited-overs games.

Why do England hate Ben Foakes?
