BIRMINGHAM: England batsman Jason Roy has averted a possible ban for the World Cup remaining after protesting about his dismissal throughout Thursday’s victory over Australia.
Roy, who had struck an impressive 85 in 65 balls, was given out caught behind off Pat Cummins, though tv replays confirmed the ball had not touched his bat or glove as he tried a pull shot.
The England opener stood his floor and remonstrated with South African umpire Marais Erasmus. England had used their assessment appeals by that stage of the semi-final.
With Roy having gained one demerit level already within the match, he risked a one-match ban, for Sunday’s remaining, if he was handed three factors and reached the four-point restrict.
However in a press release, the Worldwide Cricket Council mentioned he had been given solely two factors and a superb of 30 % of his match charge.
“Roy admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Ranjan Madugalle and as such, there was no want for a proper listening to,” the ICC mentioned.
Roy has fashioned a formidable opening partnership with Jonny Bairstow, the pair sharing century stands within the final 4 matches they’ve began collectively.
