England vs India, 3rd Test: Stuart Broad fined by ICC

England pace bowler, Stuart Broad, has been fined for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct.

The senior pacer was fined 15 per cent of his match fee, besides being given one demerit point.

The incident occurred on Day 2 of the ongoing Test match between England and India at Nottingham.

Broad gave a send-off to Rishabh Pant and was involved in a verbal exchange.

Why was Broad fined?

Broad breached Article 2.1.7 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 batsman upon his/her dismissal during an International Match."

This could have provoked the batsman to retaliate.
