England fast bowler Stuart Broad has been fined 15 percent of his match fees by referee Chris Broad for using inappropriate language in the first Test of the series against Pakistan in Manchester, thus becoming the first player to be fined by his father.
Broad was found braching Article 2.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct. According to this section, Broad was very aggressive towards the opponent by language, gestures, or his own activities during the game. In addition to the penalty, a demerit point was added against his name. This was his third offense in the last twenty-four months. As a result, the current demerit point of this fast bowler is three.
Broad had earlier broken the ICC code of conduct during the third Test against India at Trent Bridge on August 19, 2018, and the fourth Test against South Africa at Wanderers on January 2 this year.
The incident occurred in the 46th over of Pakistan's second innings on Saturday (August 8), when Broad used inappropriate language after dismissing spinner Yasir Shah. The fast bowler pleaded guilty to his father and referee Chris Broad for the match and no further hearing was required.
