Jason Roy to Face Sanction After Semi-final

His foul language and behavior towards an umpire were not excusable.

England batsman Jason Roy could face sanction, disciplinary action, or punishment after his unnecessary and inexcusable behavior and language during their semi-finals match against Australia. The altercation came after umpire Kumar Dharmasena gave Roy an out following an appeal by Australia’s wicket-keeper Alex Carey and bowler Pat Cummins.

England had already used their single review when they appealed to overturn Jonny Bairstow’s lbw call, which was unsuccessful. Dharmasena unknowingly still signaled for a review, prompting Australia to point out his error. Roy was furious, firmly believing that a wide delivery should have been called. He had to be ushered away from the field by leg umpire Marais Erasmus. Before he left the field, however, he uttered some unnecessary words and his actions towards the umpire were uncalled for.

Showing disagreement in a foul manner to an umpire’s decision is an offense under the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Code of Conduct, meaning that match referee Ranjan Madugalle can take necessary action. Nonetheless, Roy will be available to play in Sunday’s final against New Zealand at Lord’s.

Both New Zealand and England are looking for their first World Cup title. Sunday's match shouldn't be missed. Odds given to the teams are +245 and -303 for New Zealand and England, respectively. To find out more about cricket odds, visit Betwala's page.
