England opener batsman Jason Roy was fined 30 per cent of his match fee for breaching Level One of the ICC Code of Conduct during the ICC Cricket World Cup second semifinal match between the hosts and Australia at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham on Thursday.
In addition to the 30 per cent fine, two demerit points have been added to Roy’s disciplinary record.
Roy, who struck a belligerent 85 in England’s successful run chase, was found to have breached Article 2.8 ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to showing dissent at an umpire’s decision in an international match.
The incident occurred in the 20th over of the England innings when Roy showed dissent after being given out caught behind off the bowling of Pat Cummins.
Roy admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Ranjan Madugalle.
On-field umpires Marais Erasmus and Kumar Dharmasena, third umpire Chris Gaffaney and fourth official Aleem Dar had levelled the charges against Roy.
Talking about the match, hosts England thrashed Australia by eight wickets to make it to their first final since 1992.
It all started with Australia skipper Aaron Finch winning the toss and deciding to bat first.
Australia were bundled out for 223 runs, courtesy Man of the Match Chris Woakes (3/20), and Adil Rashid (3/54).
For a below-par target, England didn’t have to break a sweat and they reached home with 8 wickets in hand.
The Englishmen will take on New Zealand at Lord’s on Sunday (14 July).
