Roy, Archer, Sarfaraz fined for conduct during Trent Bridge clash

by Wisden Staff 1 minute read

Jason Roy and Jofra Archer have each been fined 15 per cent of their match fee by the ICC for their conduct during yesterday’s defeat against Pakistan.

Archer was deemed to have shown “obvious dissent” to the umpire after a wide in the 27th over of the first innings, while Roy made an “audible obscenity” in the 14th over after an England misfield.

Both players have received one demerit point each. If either player receives four demerit points in the next 24 months they could face a ban.

Victorious captain Sarfaraz Ahmed was fined 20 per cent of his match fee for a slow over rate. His team-mates were also fined 10 per cent each as “Pakistan was ruled to be one over short of its target after time allowances were taken into consideration”.

Pakistan caused an upset on Monday when they defeated tournament favourites England by 12 runs.
