England veteran Stuart Broad has responded hilariously after being hit with a 15 per cent match fee and one demerit point by his father, ICC match referee Chris Broad. The England star coped the fine and the demerit point for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during the first Test against Pakistan in Manchester.

The incident occurred in the 46th over of Pakistan’s second innings on Saturday (August 8), when the right-arm pacer used inappropriate language after dismissing spinner Yasir Shah. Consequently, he was found in violation of the Article 2.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batter upon his/her dismissal during an International Match.”

The demerit point added to his disciplinary record takes Stuart Broad’s tally to three since it’s his third offence in a 24-month period. His previous breaches were in January this year during the fourth Test against South Africa at the Wanderers, and in August 2018 in the third Test against India at Trent Bridge. Accumulation of four demerit points within 24 months leads to the players’ suspension for one Test or two limited-overs games, whatever is first on the schedule for his/her country.

Stuart Broad trolls father:

Stuart Broad had a hilarious reaction to a tweet from England’s Barmy Army on being fined by his father. Responding to the tweet, Stuart Broad hilariously stated that his dad, a former England Test player himself, was “off the Christmas card & present list”.

Meanwhile, the second Test between England and Pakistan gets underway on Thursday (August 13). England are leading the three-match series after winning the thrilling series-opener in Manchester by three wickets.
