Stuart Broad fined by his own father
Stuart Broad fined by his own father for violating the ICC code of conduct and has been fined 15 percent of his match fee for violating Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during the first test against Pakistan in Manchester.
Broad was guilty of violating Article 2.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “using language, actions or gestures that denigrate or could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batter following his expulsion during an International Match. “
The incident occurred on Saturday in the 46th of Pakistan’s second innings, when Broad used inappropriate language after firing Yasir Shah.
Broad has found himself in the peculiar position of being punished by his own father Chris for using inappropriate language in England’s First Test victory over Pakistan.
Chris Broad is the referee for the match as the ICC is temporarily using home country officials due to Covid-19 travel restrictions.
So when Stuart Broad was sworn in after firing Pakistani tailender Yasir Shah on Saturday morning, it was his father’s responsibility to punish him.
Broad has admitted the crime and accepted the proposed penalty. Level 1 offenses carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 percent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.
