London - Three more England cricketers have been punished for off-field misbehaviour, a week after team-mates Ben Stokes and Alex Hales were suspended from national-team duty following an incident on a night out.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said Jonny Bairstow, Jake Ball and Liam Plunkett have each accepted a written warning and been handed an undisclosed fine following an investigation into their "unprofessional conduct" during the recent ODI series against the West Indies.

The ECB says the investigation was unrelated to that involving Stokes and Hales, who are suspended on full pay and the subject of a separate disciplinary commission.

Stokes was arrested after video footage purportedly showed England's Test vice-captain throwing punches in a street fight.
