England Lions Matt Coles and Ben Stokes have both been sent home from the ongoing tour of Australia for disciplinary reasons.
The Kent seamer and Durham all-rounder both attended hearings after what an England and Wales Cricket Board statement termed "unprofessional conduct".
They will take no further part in the tour, on which the Lions have lost all five of their fixtures to date, and both have apologised for their behaviour. The ECB statement added: "The pair had contravened their conduct obligations previously during the tour and had been issued with written warnings."
ECB performance director David Parsons said: "On a very challenging tour to Australia, both Matt and Ben have ignored the instructions given to them around their match preparation and recovery - and following previous warnings, it is regrettable that it has been necessary to terminate their involvement in the tour.
"Both are very talented individuals - and it is hoped that, with the support of the ECB and their respective counties, they will take positive steps to give themselves the very best chance of fulfilling their potential.
