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

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.

SLC postpones the much-awaited Lankan Premier League till mid-November

After the announcement of Lankan Premier League (LPL), Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) have taken a u-turn. The apex board has decided to postpone LPL T20 until mid-November.

As per reports, it was supposed to be the country’s first significant tournament since 2012. The competition was set to commence on August 28, and around 70 international players were expected to join the premier domestic T20 tournament.

The decision of postponement has been taken in the context of COVID-19 cases in the country along with the protocols related to compulsory quarantine period. So far, Sri Lanka has registered a total of 2871 coronavirus cases.

Although, as compared to other nations, the figure is not that huge, but the board is worried about the involvement of foreign players which looks challenging at the moment, especially concerning the flying restrictions.

While speaking to NewsWire, the SLC President Shammi Silva, confirmed the news of the league’s adjournment. He said that the international players need to follow the isolation procedures which is supposed to be of at least 14 days and, therefore, it is difficult for them to organise the tournament in the last week of August.

“We had a discussion with the health authorities and the 14 day quarantine period for anyone entering the country is compulsory. So it isn’t easy to play the tournament at the end of August. We will play the tournament in mid-November after IPL,” said Silva.

Earlier, the concept of LPL was being released, which looked quite similar to the Indian Premier League (IPL). In the Lankan league, the five franchises will be given a pool of 130 local players to select the players from, and 30 international cricketers (six each per franchise) along with five coaches will be selected for the tournament every year.

When it comes to the salary, an iconic Sri Lankan player will get a salary cap of USD 60,000, while the other top cricketers would be in the range of USD 50,000 to 40,000. And the rest would fit into the USD 40,000 to 30,000 or USD 20,000 to 10,000 brackets. In the context of international players, they will be in the range of USD 10,000 to 60,000.
