England's Moeen Ali has been warned by world cricket chiefs not to wear wristbands declaring his support for the people of Gaza again during international matches.
But the International Cricket Council said Ali would face no disciplinary action on this occasion after being warned about his future conduct by match referee David Boon, the former Australia batsman.
Worcestershire all-rounder Ali wore wristbands during the third Test match against India on Monday that read "Save Gaza" and "Free Palestine", while batting during England's first innings at Southampton.
The ICC equipment and clothing regulations do not permit the display of messages that relate to political, religious or racial activities or causes, during an international match.
