Stuart Broad was fined 15 per cent of his match fee after a heated exchange with Faf du Plessis. 

On the last day of the fourth Test between South Africa and England, Stuart Broad was demerited for ‘use of an audible obscenity during an International Match’. The English bowler was involved in an argument with the Proteas captain. 

Currently, Broad has two demerit points since this was his second from the last 24 months. The umpires who gave the charges were Rod Tucker, Joel Wilson, Bruce Oxenford and Allahudien Palekar. 

In England's tour of South Africa, the visiting team won the series with an overall of 3-1. The four-Test matches were filled with outbursts. 

Broad’s teammate, Jos Butler also received a fine after a conflict with South Africa’s Vernon Philander, who in return was reprimanded for his send-off. 

Kagiso Rabada, the Proteas bowler, was excluded for the fourth Test match after being out due to his celebration of Joe Root’s wicket in the previous match. 

On top of that, the South Africa cricket team was deducted six points at the World Test Championship for the slow over-rate in the last Test. 

South Africa and England will meet once again for the three-match ODI series starting on February 4. 

Meanwhile, South Africa (+108) women’s cricket team is set for an ODI series against New Zealand (-126.58), tomorrow.
