ENG VS IND 2018: 3rd Test – Stuart Broad Reprimanded for Aggressive Send-off to Rishabh Pant
International Cricket Council (ICC) reprimanded England pacer Stuart Broad for his aggressive send off to India’s Rishabh Pant on day two of the third Test at Trent Bridge.
Broad’s send-off attracted a 15 percent fine and one demerit point to his account. An ICC release stated that Broad breached ICC Code of Conduct relating to “using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batsman upon his/her dismissal during an International Match.”
Meanwhile, the incident occurred on the second day of the Trent Bridge Test. Following the dismissal of the debutant India wicket-keeper, Rishabh Pant, the pacer went up to the departing batsman and exchanged words with him in an aggressive manner.
On-field umpires Marais Erasmus and Chris Gaffaney along with third umpire Aleem Dar laid the charges. Stuart Broad accepted the sanction levied by match referee Jeff Crowe, without the need of a formal hearing.
India on the verge of winning this Test at Trent Bridge
Team India is on the verge of bouncing back in the five-match Test series as they need one wicket to beat England in the third Test at Trent Bridge.
However, England tailenders showed enough grit to throw away their wickets. Adil Rashid first partnered Stuart Broad to stretch, and then he and James Anderson took the game on day five.
Virat Kohli tried all his option before handing the ball to Jasprit Bumrah, who produced a magical spell on the evening session of day 4 at Trent Bridge. He bagged five wickets to take India on the verge of the win at Trent Bridge.
Previously, Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes added 168 runs before England lost four wickets in the afternoon session of day four. The duo dominated the Indian bowling taking the attack to the opposition. While Stokes was a bit tame, Buttler went after the bowling to bring his maiden century in Test cricket.
Meanwhile, England was on the verge of defeat on the morning session itself after losing four wickets quickly.
India now needs only one wicket to come back in the series and make it 2-1 in favour of England.
