Perth Stadium streaker faces $5000 fine, three-year cricket ban

A Perth man faces a $5000 fine and has been banned from all Cricket Australia matches for three years after streaking during Australia's ODI clash with England on Sunday.

The man has been identified as former Kalgoorlie City footballer Ben Jenkins, the ABC Goldfields reports.

It is understood Mr Jenkins has been banned by Cricket Australia from all venues for 36 months, saying it has a "zero tolerance policy against anybody looking to come to the cricket and interrupt the match by entering the field of play".

"A true Australian icon," Darcy Parket said.

"$50 coming your way Ben," Jules Bradley-Woodhead wrote.

In just three hours the page had already raised more than $2000.

Mr Jenkins evaded security for about half a minute in the 17th over with Australia 2/92 chasing England's 260 in the first international match at the new multimillion-dollar stadium, just as Australian captain Steve Smith hit Adil Rashid out to mid wicket for three runs.

He was swiftly tackled to the ground and now faces a fine of about $5000 for his fun run.

Optus Stadium CEO Mike McKenna wasn't impressed with Mr Jenkin's carrying out the questionable Australian tradition at the first event at the stadium.

"It was disappointing he got past security, and it was disappointing he made it past the boundary," he said.

"I think it's dangerous, it's a dangerous practice, no one likes that sort of thing.

"The crowd gets excited... but there can be a risk to our players."

Close to 54,000 fans attended the new Perth Stadium its first major sporting event.
