Jofra Archer and Jason Roy have been fined 15 per cent of their match fees for breaching Level One of the ICC Code of Conduct during the match between England and Pakistan. According to a media release from ICC, Jason Roy breached the Article 2.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct, which relates to using audible obscenities in an international match. In addition to the fine, one demerit point was also added to Roy’s disciplinary record. The incident occurred during the 14th over of Pakistan’s innings when Roy used an audible obscenity after misfielding which was heard by the umpires.

Archer breached Article 2.8 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players, which relates to showing dissent at an umpire’s decision.
