Former New Zealand cricketer and Canterbury contracted player Ronnie Hira has been cited and could face a suspension after reacting to taunts from spectators at the weekend.

It is understood Hira was cited for allegedly retaliating verbally to spectators' taunts as he walked off the field, having been dismissed for a duck playing for his Lancaster Park-Woolston club team in the Christchurch Metro Cricket one-day final against East Christchurch-Shirley on Sunday.

Christchurch Metro Cricket general manager Mike Harvey confirmed Hira had been cited, but said he could not comment further before the hearing.

Members of the public, match officials and staff of Canterbury Cricket or Christchurch Metropolitan Cricket can lay complaints. It is understood umpires Roger Wyeth and David Brandon did not lay the complaint.

It is policy to try and hold a hearing before the next playing Saturday.
