Broad fined over tweet

Broad fined over tweet LONDON: England quick Stuart Broad has been fined by the ICC after posting a tweet questioning the first-innings dismissal of team-mate Alex Hales during the fourth Test.

At the time of Thursday’s dismissal, Daily Mirror cricket correspondent Dean Wilson tweeted: “THAT IS OUT – Hales (6) clips Amir to Yasir at mid-wkt who takes a low catch diving forward. Replays are unclear but umps say out 23-1.”

But after Thursday’s close of play, Broad replied via Twitter saying: “@CricketMirror replays are unclear? You don’t believe that do you?”

Match referee Richie Richardson hit Broad with a 20 percent fine.

Broad, 30, was found to have contravened the clause in the ICC’s code of conduct relating to “public criticism of, or inappropriate comment in relation to an incident occurring in an international match”.
