Why England star Jason Roy will be anxious

  • Jason Roy

Roy was hit with his second fine of the World Cup, having unleashed a foul-mouthed tirade at an umpire while marching England to victory over Australia, but the in-form opener is in no doubt of missing Sunday's final through suspension. England take on New Zealand in the World Cup final, with the opener being handed the responsibility of starting them off on the right note.

However, since Jonny Bairstow had already used up the review unsuccessfully, Roy could not. Roy could not contain his disbelief when the Sri Lankan gave him out caught behind off Pat Cummins 15 runs shy of what would have been a 10th one-day worldwide hundred, and was subsequently hit with two demerit points on his record following England's brilliant eight-wicket win over Australia at Edgbaston.

Roy was found to have breached Article 2.8 ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to showing dissent at an umpire's decision in an global match.

Despite making a howler in the semi-final between England and Australia at Edgbaston on Thursday, that was as blatant as it gets, Kumar Dharmasena of Sri Lanka has been appointed as one of the two on-field umpires for the final at Lord's tomorrow.

Roy has now collected three demerit points at the event.

"If you had offered us the position to play in a final the day after we were knocked out of 2015 World Cup, I would have laughed at you", the Irishman said.

His partner will be South African Marais Erasmus, who also stood in the same semi-final.

Rod Tucker will be the sole Australian representative at Lord's in his capacity as third umpire, while Aleem Dar, of Pakistan, will be fourth official.

Jason Roy was fined two demerit points and 30 per cent of his fee by ICC match referee Ranjan Madugalle after reacting badly to being given out by Kumar Dhamasena, caught behind down the leg side off Pat Cummins for 85.
