Englands opening batsman Jason Roy has been fined 30 percent of his match fee after he had a dispute at the umpire’s decision during the second semi-final clash against Australia in Manchester on Thursday.

“Roy 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. In addition to the 30% fine, two demerit points have been added to Roy’s disciplinary record.” – ICC stated.

Roy came out furiously on Australian bowler when he has to chase a modest target of 224 runs. Roy made a score of 85 runs in just 65 balls before he was caught in the 19-over, bowled by Pat Cummins. However, Roy expressed dissent over the Umpire’s decision of declaring him out.

Roy admitted the offense and accepted the sanction proposed by the ICC match referee Ranjan Madugalle.

On-field umpires Marais Erasmus and Kumar Dharmasena, third umpire Chris Gaffaney and fourth official Aleem Dar leveled the charges against the right-hander Jason Roy.

England had a massive eight-wicket victory over Australia and will have clash against New Zealand in the finals at Lord’s on July 14.
