Stuart Broad Punished For Violating ICC Code of Conduct, Check The Whole Story Here: Stuart Broad, England’s fast bowler, has received an official reprimand for violating Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct during England’s third Test match against New Zealand in Leeds. England won the series, which was part of the ICC Test Championship.
Broad was found to have violated Article 2.9 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Support Staff, which prohibits throwing a ball improperly or dangerously at or near a player during an international match.
Broad’s disciplinary record has also been updated with one demerit point for the second offense in 24 months, bringing his total to two demerit points.
On Sunday, in the 89th over of New Zealand’s second innings, Broad fielded the ball on his follow-through and threw it in the direction of Daryl Mitchell. The batsmen were inside the popping crease and had no intention of scoring.
David Boon, an ICC Elite Panel match referee, took action against Broad and has admitted his error. In such a case, there will be no hearing on this matter. The allegation was made by on-field umpires Marais Erasmus and Richard Kettlebrough, third umpire Aleem Dar, and fourth umpire David Mills.
When a player accumulates four or more demerit points in 24 months, they are converted to suspension points, and the player is suspended. Broad only has two points in his account. England won the Test series 3-0 over New Zealand.
