World T20: Jason Roy, David Willey fined for misconduct in Delhi: England seamer David Willey and opener Jason Roy have been fined for breaching the ICC’s Code of Conduct during their victory against Sri Lanka in Delhi on Saturday.

England beat Sri Lanka by 10 runs in their final Super 10 match on Saturday to enter the semis and set up clash against New Zealand at the same venue, Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi on Wednesday.

Jason Roy showed dissent at the umpire’s decision after being given out LBW while David Willey used obscene language and gave Sri Lanka batsman Milinda Siriwardana a send-off by pointing towards the pavilion.

Roy has been fined 30 per cent of his match fee. Willey was found guilty of violating Article 2.1.7 of the Code, which relates to: “using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batsman upon his/her dismissal during an international match”. He has been fined 15 per cent of his match fee.

Willey picked up two wickets in the match leaking just 26 runs in his 4-over quota while Roy scored a 39-ball 42.
