Lahore : Jason Roy has been fined 30% of his match fee for breaching Level One of the ICC Code of Conduct during the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup match between England and Australia at Edgbaston today. He was wrongly given out by the umpire as the English squad had used their right to review the decision so they could not challenge the umpire decision.
Jason Roy who was displaying a marvelous batting to take England to final ,was given out on 85 on 65 balls.
Roy was found to have breached Article 2.8 ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to showing dissent at an umpires decision in an international match. In addition to the 30% fine, two demerit points have been added to Roy’s disciplinary record.
The incident occurred during the 19th over of England’s innings when Roy showed his dissent at being given out.
Roy admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Ranjan Madugalle, of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing.
On-field umpires Marais Erasmus and Kumar Dharmasena, third umpire Chris Gaffaney and fourth official Aleem Dar levelled the charges.
