On Monday, England, led by Joe Root, was fined 40% of his match fees for a slow excess rate against New Zealand in the first test at Lord’s Cricket Ground. Chris Broad of the ICC Elite Match Referees Panel imposed a penalty after Joe Root’s team was ruled two points short of the goal after considering time bonuses. “In accordance with Article 2.22 of the Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Workers, violations of the minimum excess rate will result in players receiving a fine of 20 per cent of their match fees for each side for failing in the given Bowl time,” the ICC said in a statement. .
Root was convicted of the crime and accepted the proposed Penalties, so there was no need for a formal hearing.
Field umpires Michael Gough and Richard Kettleborough, third umpire Richard Illingworth and fourth umpire Mike Burns equalized.
England skipper Joe Root and Dominic Sibley helped the hosts equalize in the first test, scoring New Zealand at 169/6. The two teams will play against each other in the next test, starting on Thursday.
The Sussex bowler Ollie Robinson was suspended from all international cricket after tweets were published in 2012 and 2013 as a result of a disciplinary investigation.
The ECB said in a statement that Robinson would leave the English camp and return to his county. Last week, Robinson “apologized” for the “racist and sexist” tweets he posted as a teenager eight years ago.
