Check out the post and Anderson’s comment:
But all hasn’t been going well for, Stuart Board as he received an official reprimand from the International Cricket Council and also received a demerit point which will be added to his record for a code of conduct breach during the Headingley Test, where the English team registered a seven-wicket win.
Stuart Broad was punished for breaching Article 2.9, with talks about throwing a ball “at or near a player in an inappropriate and/or dangerous manner”. The incident took place during the 89th over of New Zealand’s second innings when Broad stopped the ball in his follow-through and threw it towards Daryl Mitchell when the Kiwi batter was still in his crease.
Broad accepted the Level One offense and agreed to the sanctions presented by the ICC match referee at Headingley, David Boon. This will be Stuart Broad‘s second offense in the last 24 months as he previously received a demerit point for using an “inappropriate word” towards Pakistan leg spinner Yasir Shah during the 2020 Old Trafford Test against Pakistan. Collecting four or more demerit points within 24 months can lead to one Test or two limited-overs match ban.
