Stuart Broad gave a send-off to Yasir Shah after dismissing him in first test of Pak vs Eng series
In the ongoing test series between Pakistan and England, Stuart Broad is found to breach the ICC code of conduct, article 2.5 which prevents the dismisser to use fowl language or action which provokes batsman to react aggressively. He was handed fine by his father who is part of referee panel of the match: Chris Broad.
According to article 2.5 of ICC rules and regulations for the players, the bowler is not allowed to show any language, gesture or action after dismissing a batsman which in any way provokes an aggressive reaction from the dismissed batsman.
Yasir Shah played a quickbuster 33 runs on 24 deliveries, on fourth day of first test match, Stuart Broad gave a send-off to Yasir Shah after dismissing him on Saturday morning 8th of August. although Yasir Shah didn’t respond to his words but Broad was caught by cameras and is fined 15% of his match fee for breaching the sacred rule of ICC and also given one demerit point by his Dad and former English cricketer additionally one of the referee of panel’s group, Brian Christopher Broad.
Junior broad admitted his breach and accepted the sanction proposed by his father. This is the third incident in 24 months which gleans a number of three demerit points for the English fast bowler. Which eventually means he is given the last chance. If he does the same again, he will get suspended. As the player who gets four demerit points in a period of 24 months, has to bear a suspension time.
BUT! going through the dates of offender’s breaches, his previous demerit point was given this year in January while playing against South Africa, and the first one was against India in 2018 August, 22, so it Is fair to say that he is safe from being suspended if he gets passed second test and first innings of third one of Pakistan vs England series without violating any rule set by ICC for players.
