Cricket fans’ group England’s Barmy Army took to twitter and wrote,” Stuart Broad fined and given a demerit point by his dad, match referee Chris Broad! Looks like we might need to change the words to his song slightly.”
34-year Broad, who recently joined the 500-Test wickets club, came out with a hilarious reply saying,” He’s (father) off the Chrismas card and present list.” Cricket fans also jumped on the bandwagon and commented on the cricket star’s response.
Stuart has been fined 15 per cent of his match earnings for ‘using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction’. The incident occurred in the 46th over of Pakistan’s second innings on Saturday, when Broad used inappropriate language after dismissing Yasir Shah.
Broad, 34, admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by his father. No formal hearing was conducted. On-field umpires Richard Kettleborough and Richard Illingworth, third umpire Michael Gough and fourth official Steve O’Shaughnessy levelled the charge.
