England cricketer Stuart Broad fined 15 percent of match fee for using inappropriate language
Dubai/UNI: England cricketer Stuart Broad has been fined 15 percent of his match fee for using inappropriate language after dismissing Yasir Shah during the first Test against Pakistan in Manchester, ICC said on Tuesday.
Broad, a pace bowler, has also been handed over one demerit point for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct. It was his third offence in a 24-month period, taking his cumulative demerit points to three.
"Broad was found to have breached Article 2.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to "using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batter upon his/her dismissal during an International Match," the ICC said in a statement.
The pacer's previous breaches were on Jan 27 this year during the fourth Test against South Africa at the Wanderers, and on Aug 19, 2018 in the third Test against India at Trent Bridge.
The incident occurred in the 46th over of Pakistan’s second innings on Saturday, when Broad used inappropriate language after dismissing Yasir Shah.
Broad admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Chris Broad of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees and ratified by the ICC Cricket Operations department as per the COVID-19 interim playing regulations. There was no need for a formal hearing, ICC said.
On-field umpires Richard Kettleborough and Richard Illingworth, third umpire Michael Gough and fourth official Steve O’Shaughnessy levelled the charge.
Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.
