Stuart Broad, England fast bowler, has been fined 15% of his match fee for using ‘inappropriate language’ during the opening Test of the three-match Test series against Pakistan.

The incident is said to have occurred during Pakistan’s second innings after the newest entrant in the 500 Test wickets club dismissed Pakistan leg-spinner, Yasir Shah.

Broad has admitted to the offense and accepted the sanction issued by his dad Chris Broad, who was officiating as the Match Referee.


Stuart Broad has also received one demerit point which takes his tally to three in the current 24-month cycle

If the English fast bowler receives one more demerit point within the said period, then he will be handed a suspension.

Broad, who made a brilliant return to the team following his axe from the playing XI in the opening Test of the summer, claimed a total of six wickets in the opening Test at Old Trafford, a match that England eventually won by three wickets.

The second Test between England and Pakistan will kickstart from Thursday, August 13, at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton.
