<p>It seems that during a change of ends in the Plunket Shield game between Nicholls’ Canterbury province and Auckland, Nicholls brushed the ball on a helmet on television.</p>
<p>In a statement released on Friday, New Zealand Cricket said, “Nicholls has been reported for allegedly breaching Rule 3.1, article 1.15 of the Code during Day 3 of the Plunket Shield match between Canterbury and Auckland at Hagley Oval.”</p>
<p>“Changing the condition of the ball in breach of Law 41.3 of the Laws of Cricket,” according to the regulation.</p>
<p>According to New Zealand Cricket, a first-class cricket commissioner has been tasked with reviewing the accusation.</p>
<p>The hearing has not yet been scheduled. Later this month, Nicholls and the New Zealand team are scheduled to travel Bangladesh. Nicholls has not responded to the accusation.</p>
<p>Leading limited-overs players from New Zealand are playing in the Cricket World Cup in India; after their victory against Sri Lanka on Thursday, the 2019 runners-up advanced to the semifinals.</p>
