Officials For Final on Sunday Announced

World Cup 2019: Jason Roy fined 30% of his match fee for showing dissent towards umpire

Former Australian Test opener Ed Cowan has slammed England's World Cup hero Jason Roy for his antics after being dismissed in the semi-final against Australia.

On-field umpires Marais Erasmus and Kumar Dharmasena, third umpire Chris Gaffaney and fourth official Aleem Dar had levelled the charges against Roy.

Roy (85 off 65 balls) seemed set for a century when he missed a pull shot off Pat Cummins in the 20th over of England's chase.

Nevertheless, Dharmasena confusingly and incorrectly signalled for a review, with Australia pointing out the official's mistake.

While Roy was penalised for descent, the umpire has been rewarded by the ICC with an honour to officiate in the final at Lord's.

Roy requested a review but England had already squandered their lone review of the innings with an unsuccessful attempt to overturn fellow opener Jonny Bairstow's lbw dismissal for 34. The Surrey batsman made his case to the referee but was eventually told to leave the field and news of his fine emerged following the eight-wicket win which sealed a spot in Sunday's World Cup final at Lord's.

Replays suggested he did not touch the ball.

In addition to the 30 per cent fine, two demerit points have been added to Roy's disciplinary record.

The referee of the match will be Sri Lanka's Ranjan Madugalle. Dharamsena was wrong in giving Roy out and it led social media to run a campaign to remove the umpire from the final.

Dharmasena has won the ICC's Umpire of the Year award on two occasions - in 2012 and 2018.

But ICC's selection of umpires for what is admittedly the most important ODI game of the year, did not sit well with fans after Kumar Dharmasena got involved in a controversial situation on Thursday, 11th July during the England-Australia semi-finals.
