KL Rahul has been fined 15 per cent of his match fee for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during the third day of the fourth Test against England at The Oval.

KL Rahul Fined 15 % Of Match Fee And One Demerit Point Added To His Disciplinary Record After He Showed Dissent On Being Given Out

In addition to this, one demerit point has been added to the disciplinary record of the opener, for whom it was the first offence in a 24-month period. The incident occurred in the 34th over of India’s second innings on Saturday, when the batsman showed dissent on being adjudged caught behind the wicket following a DRS review.

The incident happened in the 34th over of India’s second innings, in the morning session on Day 3, when KL Rahul was dismissed after edging a James Anderson delivery on 46. After an initial not-out call on the field, the decision was overturned after a successful DRS from England. KL Rahul, however, believed the sound came off his bat hitting the pad and not the edge, and shook his head in disbelief as he was given marching orders.

KL Rahul admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Chris Broad of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees and ratified by the ICC Cricket Operations department as per the COVID-19 interim playing regulations. There was no need for a formal hearing.

On-field umpires Richard Illingworth and Alex Wharf, third umpire Michael Gough and fourth official Mike Burns levelled the charges. Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.

KL Rahul’s Opening Partner Rohit Sharma Slams First Overseas Test Ton

KL Rahul has been in fine form this series and is only behind Joe Root and Rohit Sharma in the run-scorers list. With one century and another fifty, KL Rahul has scored 315 runs in the series so far at an average of 42.85.

KL Rahul’s 46 helped India get off to a good start in the second innings at the Oval, with opening partner Rohit Sharma going on to score a century and Cheteshwar Pujara hitting a half-century to take India to a good position at the end of Day 3. India lead England by 171 runs ahead of Day 4, with Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja at the crease.

Rohit Sharma slammed a century off 205 balls with the help of 12 fours and a six that he used to bring his ton. He went on to score 127 runs off 256 deliveries. Rohit Sharma notched up his eighth Test hundred and, more significantly, his first away from home on Saturday.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli started well but Chris Woakes soon dismissed Ravindra Jadeja on Day 4 of the ongoing fourth Test match, at The Oval on Sunday. India was placed at 296/5 leading by 199 runs as Ajinkya Rahane, disappointed again as he returned back to the pavilion without troubling the scorers despite playing 8 balls.

Stuart Broad Reacts Hilariously After Being Fined By Dad And Match Referee Chris Broad

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.

Yuvraj Singh Reveals What Stuart Broad’s Father Said Him After Hitting Six Sixes To His Son

The legendary Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh smashed six sixes in an over of the English pacer Stuart Broad during a match of the Super Eight stage in the ICC World T20 2007. Recently, Yuvraj revealed what Chris Broad, father of Stuart Broad, said him after that knock.

Yuvraj Singh’s six sixes against Stuart Broad was an unforgettable incident. He is still the only batsman to hit six sixes in an over in the T20I history while he was the second batsman to hit six sixes in an over in the international cricket history. Those sixes also led him to record the fastest fifty in T20 history which is still intact.

Recently, Yuvraj claimed that the ICC match referee Chris Broad came up to him on the next day of that game and said he almost finished his son’s career. Then the senior Broad asked him to sign a shirt for his son. Yuvraj not only gave his Indian jersey but also sent an all the best message.

Yuvraj told BBC podcast, “His dad, Chris Broad, is a match referee and he came up to me the next day and said ‘you almost finished my son’s career and now you need to sign a shirt for him’.

“So I gave my India jersey and wrote a message for Stuart saying, ‘I have been hit for five sixes so I know how it feels. For the future of England cricket, all the best’.”

I don’t think any bowler from India could get hit for six sixes in an over and then have such a fantastic career like Stuart Broad: Yuvraj Singh

While Stuart Broad was a newcomer at that moment, the right-arm pacer is now one of the greatest pacers in England cricket history. He is currently the second most international wicket-taker for England and most T20I wicket-taker for England. Yuvraj praised him for his amazing success in international cricket.

Yuvraj added, “Stuart is one of the best bowlers in the world now. I don’t think any bowler from India could get hit for six sixes in an over and then have such a fantastic career.”

Less than a month ago before that historic T20I match, England cricketer Dimitri Mascarenhas once hit Yuvraj five successive sixes in the final over of an ODI innings at The Oval. Incidentally, Mascarenhas featured in that ICC World T20 match against India where Yuvi hit six sixes to Broad. After hitting the six sixes, Yuvraj first looked to the earlier chaos maker English all-rounder Andrew Flintoff, and then he saw Mascarenhas who smiled at him.

Yuvraj claimed, “Freddie was just being Freddie – he said a few words and I said a few words back.

“I was just happy the six sixes came against England because I got hit for five sixes by Dimitri Mascarenhas a few weeks earlier in an ODI.

“When I hit the sixth six, obviously the first look was at Freddie but the second look was at Dimitri, who gave me a smile.”


India vs Australia 2017: Indian Team Management Accuse Australian Team Management Of Cheating

The Indian team management has accused Australian team of cheating in the ongoing Test series between India and Australia, as per reports. The series has been a tough one for both the teams as after beating home side in the first Test, the Australian team carved out an epic loss in the second Test after being bowled out on 112, chasing a mere target of 188. The third Test was evenly poised and both the teams had an equal say in the game. The Test match ended in a draw.

Apart from on-field controversies and game plans, the heated series has been interrupted by off-field controversies as well as Australian media, which is the 12th man for the Kangaroos as per Sunil Gavaskar, is spreading venom against Indian team.

They have accused Kohli of foul play, have called him Donald Trump and also compared Indian skipper to an animal The Australian media has touched a new low and if the latest report is to be believed, the visiting media is getting instructions from none other than Australian team management itself to do such things.

The Indian team management has accused Australian team managers Gavi Dovey and Kate Hutchison of setting a meeting of an Australian journalist with Chris Broad, who didn’t take an action against Steve Smith for DRS controversy, even when Smith was caught on national television for asking for a help from the dressing room.

“At the end of the Bengaluru Test, Dovey went to meet Broad and the (Broad) assured him that there would be no action taken against Steve Smith. Broad assured the Australian team manager that this entire incident would not be reported by field umpire Nigel Llong,” a member of Indian camp told TOI.

“Dovey then introduced an Australian journalist to Broad and asked the latter to give him bytes on whether the dressing room review was reported or would be reported. The journalist tweeted the following on March 17, 2017, at 4.14 pm: ‘Match officials say the only time they are aware of Australians looking up to dressing room for guidance was Smith incident today Broad has broken the ICC protocol here and nobody is looking into it,” member added.

Chris Broad was removed as the match referee for the last two games and Richie Richardson, the former West Indies player replaced him after the DRS controversy,

Further, the member of Indian camp added that the Australian media manager gives regular updates to the Australian journalists during the matches,

“At the end of every session, the Australian media manager goes to the dressing room where she is briefed by the team manager. She then goes and plants it with the Australian journalists. For instance, in Ranchi, when Australian players were sledging Virat by using physio Patrick Farhat’s name, even the stump mic didn’t catch it nor Virat spoke about it. However, at the end of the day’s play, the Australian journalists started asking Virat about the incident,” the source said.

The series was expected to be an aggressive contest but the Australian journalists, with the help of Australian team management have touched a low, to make series a toxic one. This series will always be remembered for the off-field controversies, more than the form of the players.

India vs Australia 2017: Richie Richardson To Replace Chris Broad For Last Two Tests

The former West Indies player Richie Richardson will take over the match referee duties for the last two games of the Test series between India and Australia. He will replace Chris Broad, who officiated in the first two games of the series.

Chris Broad was under scanner after he was criticised by legendary Sunil Gavaskar for not taking any action against Australian captain Steve Smith in the DRS row. Along with that, Broad was in the dock again when he had a talk with media regarding the DRS row. As per the rules, a match referee cannot openly give public statements regarding the game.

It was Broad only who rated Pune pitch as poor. So him being replaced for the last two Tests do not comes as a surprise as he have had strings of controversies on this tour but ICC has defended this rejig,

“There is no sudden change. Chris (Broad) was always supposed to referee in the first two Tests, while Richie Richardson was appointed for the last two Tests”, the ICC spokesperson said from Dubai.

Not only match referees, there will be also new two on-field umpires. It will be the pair of Ian Gould and Chris Gaffaney who will be performing the on-field umpiring duties with Nigel Llong, the on-field umpire of previous two games, performing the third umpire duties.

The third and the penultimate Test match of the series will be played in Ranchi from March 16. The JSCA Stadium will be making its debut and will become 26th Test venue in India to host a Test match.

India vs Australia 2017: Bengaluru Pitch Rated ‘Below Average’ By ICC Match Referee

The pitch used for the second Test between India and Australia at Bengaluru has been been rated as ‘below average’ by the International Cricket Council (ICC) match referee Chris Broad in his report.

The latest rating from Broad is a huge blow for Indian cricket which has already faced a lot of flak over pitches in recent times. Broad had earlier given a ‘poor’ rating for the Pune pitch on which the first Test of the ongoing four-match series was played. The series-opener ended inside three days with Australia thrashing the hosts by a massive margin of 333 runs. It was the second instance when an Indian pitch was rated poor after the Nagpur pitch was given a similar rating following India’s win over South Africa in three days in 2015-16.

While the Bengaluru track did not provide as much turn as the Pune one, it provided enough turn and variable bounce that made life difficult for batsmen. On the very first day of the Test, Australia off-spinner Nathan Lyon took a career-best 8/50 as the visitors bowled out India for a paltry 189. The pitch became more difficult as the match progressed and it finally ended inside four days after India dismissed Australia for 113 to register a 75-run victory.

As per the reports, Broad rated the outfield as “very good”, but gave the pitch a ‘below- average rating due to variable bounce.  Meanwhile, a below-average rating does not carry any penalty or fine.

For pitches to be rated ‘below average’, the guidelines state:

“Either very little carry and/or bounce and/or more than occasional seam movement, or occasional variable (but not excessive or dangerous) bounce and/or occasional variable carry. If a pitch demonstrates these features, then the pitch can not be rated in a higher category regardless of the amount of turn the pitch displays at any stage of the match.”

India vs Australia 2017: Replacing Match Officials For Last Two Tests Not A Sudden Decision

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has dismissed suggestions that Chris Broad has been removed as the match referee for the last two Tests of the Border-Gavaskar series due to the criticism he faced for his handling of the DRS controversy during the Bengaluru Test.

West Indies’ Richie Richardson is all set to take over from Broad for the remaining two Tests of the series. The English official has come under fire for his performance in the ongoing series. He has been severely criticised for not taking action against Australia skipper Steven Smith who was caught seeking input from the dressing room on a DRS referral. Not only that, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has also disagreed with his ‘poor’ rating of the Pune pitch. And removing Broad right after the second Test has raised a lot of eyebrows.

However, the ICC has said the decision was not sudden and Broad was supposed to officiate in the first two matches of the series only.

“There is no sudden change. Chris (Broad) was always supposed to referee in the first two Tests, while Richie Richardson was appointed for the last two Tests”, the ICC spokesperson said from Dubai.

Interestingly, the governing body of the game has also replaced the two on-field umpires for the Ranchi and Dharamshala Tests. The officials will be replaced by England’s Ian Gould and New Zealand’s Chris Gaffaney (New Zealand). On the other hand, English official Nigel Llong, who was a field umpire in the first two Tests, will officiate as a TV umpire in Ranchi.

The penultimate match of the series will begin on March 16 in Ranchi before the final match takes place in Dharamsala from March 25.

Indian Media Claim Chris Broad May Face ‘Wrath’ After Opening Up on Steven Smith’s DRS Episode

International Cricket Council’s (ICC) match referee for the second Test of four-match series between India-Australia in Bengaluru, Chris Broad according to reports, told Australian media that on-field umpires were aware of the only incident when the Kangaroos skipper Steven Smith looked up at the team viewing area for the DRS consent.

The match referee Broad seemed to have crossed the line after allegedly talking to the Australia media on the on-field episode for DRS referral.

Without the official body’s consent, match referees do not discuss the matter with the media according to the rules of ICC itself.

However, the ICC is yet to comment on the episode which has unfolded on the fourth day of the Bengaluru Test as that further has been the focus of attention of all quarters in the media outlets.

Broad, while speaking to a section of media according to The Daily Telegraph, allegedly stated ‘umpires were unaware about the habit of team viewing area’ and has further expressed Smith would not face any sanction over the incident.

The reports suggested, Broad will be replaced by Richie Richardson for the final two Tests which will be held in Ranchi and Dharamsala.

Broad has also denied Virat Kohli’s statement of bringing the incident to umpires’ notice when he claimed he watched the visitors looked towards the dressing room twice during the game when he was batting.

“I saw that two times happening when I was batting out there. I pointed it out to the umpire as well and it has happened twice I have seen their players looking upstairs for confirmation and that’s why the umpire was at him,” Kohli said during the press conference.

The 27-year-old Smith termed the incident as ‘brain fade’ when he looked at the box for the DRS consent.

“I got hit on the pad and looked down to Petey (Peter Handscomb) and he said look up there, so I turned around and it was a bit of a brain fade on my behalf. I shouldn’t have done that. I was looking at our boys, so shouldn’t have done that,” said during the post-match press conference after the Bengaluru loss.

Kohli said it was not good for the game of cricket as he has also informed the match officials which he himself would never like to do. The 28-year-old aggressive skipper told one can’t cross the line in the field of cricket.

“When he (Smith) turned back, the umpires knew exactly what was going on, because we observed that, told match referee also and the umpires. I would never do something like that on the cricket field,” Kohli revealed earlier.
