England opener, Jason Roy has been fined for showing dissent to the umpire after a controversial decision against Australia in the World Cup semi-final.
Jason Roy was batting on 85 when he was given out off Cummins by the umpire Dharamasena. Roy said that he didn’t nick the ball and started arguing with the umpires. Dharamesna was about to give a wide before he changed his decision to catch behind the wickets.
As per the ICC, the right-hander was found guilty of breaching Article 2.8 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel after showing dissent to the umpire upon his dismissal in the 19th over of the innings.
Roy has been fined 30% of the match fee after admitting the offense and sanction, with no formal hearing to take place. Two demerit points have been added to his disciplinary record. However, he won’t face any suspension.
