Australian pacer James Pattinson is all set to miss his side's opening Test of the two-match series against Pakistan after being found to have violated Cricket Australia's Code of Conduct relating to "personal abuse of a player".

"I made a mistake in the heat of the moment".

This is the third time this year that Pattinson has been found guilty of a Code of Conduct breach in Shield games.

News Corp. reported Pattinson abused Queensland batsman Cameron Gannon with an alleged homophobic slur on the second day of the match but immediately apologised to the player and match officials. "Straight away I realised I was in the wrong, and I apologised immediately, both to the opponent and to the umpires", the International Cricket Council (ICC) quoted Pattinson as saying. "I'm gutted to miss a Test match, but the standards are there for a reason and the fault is mine".

In deciding not to contest the charge, Pattinson effectively pleaded guilty and faced a ban of one test match or two Sheffield Shield matches.

"Pattinson's got a good record in Brisbane as well (29 first-class wickets at 20 at the Gabba compared to 38 at 31 for Starc)", the former Australia captain told cricket.com.au.

Pattinson had previously been found guilty of two level one code of conduct breaches over the past year, which also included showing dissent towards the umpire's decision in the game against South Australia.

"It's unfortunate, doesn't sit with our values and he knows and understands that", Australia captain Tim Paine said.

"I don't think he is going to be there", Paine said.

"James understands he's let himself down, let the group down and we expect him to bounce back".

Meanwhile, Cricket Australia's Head of Integrity and Security, Sean Caroll said that Pattinson has admitted that he fell short of maintaining the highest standards of behaviour during the Sheffield Shield clash.
