In a statement released by Sanzar, the yellow cards were issued in the 17th and 42nd minutes of the match between New Zealand and South Africa at Eden Park in Auckland on 14 September.

The case is to be considered in the first instance by Sanzar duty judicial officer Adam Casselden.

Casselden recommended that Du Plessis should appear before a judicial hearing via video conference on 17 September.
 
The judicial officer for the hearing will be Terry Willis.

Earlier, Bok captain Jean de Villiers shrugged off Du Plessis' red card, saying that the hooker was left devastated at having let his team mates down.

"Bismarck is a physical player.

"He is a very good tackler and I think he executes his tackles very well," De Villiers said.

"So he was disappointed that he only played 30 minutes of this game.

"We're all disappointed, we're disappointed with the results and that hurts.

"It is what it is and we have to move on and learn from this because at the end of the day, whatever decisions were made we didn't play well.

"Even though we lost on the scoreboard and had 14 men, we didn't play well, we didn't defend well and that's the concerning thing for me.

"We need to be hard on ourselves if we want to compete with the best. I don't think we will ever be happy with a loss."
