Eng vs NZ, 3rd Test


Stuart Broad has received an official reprimand from the ICC and had a demerit point added to his record for a code of conduct breach during the Headingley Test, which England won by seven wickets.

Broad was charged with a breach of Article 2.9, with relates to throwing a ball “at or near a player in an inappropriate and/or dangerous manner”. The incident occurred during the 89th over of New Zealand’s second innings, when Broad fielded the ball in his follow through and threw it towards Daryl Mitchell, with the New Zealand batter having not left his crease.

Broad admitted the Level One offence and accepted the sanction proposed by David Boon, the ICC match referee at Headingley.

This counts as Broad’s second offence within a 24-month period, having previously received a demerit point for directing an “inappropriate word” at Yasir Shah during the 2020 Old Trafford Test against Pakistan. Collecting four or more demerit points within 24 months can result in a ban for one Test or two limited-overs matches.

Broad went wicketless in New Zealand’s second innings in Leeds, finishing the series with 12 at 35.25, with England subsequently chasing down a target of 296 on the fifth day.
