Stuart Broad has been fined 30% of his match fee for telling umpire Aleem Dar to “just get on with the game” during the fourth day of the Newlands Test.

The incident happened the 195th over of South Africa’s innings after Dar had warned England captain Alastair Cook about Broad damaging the pitch when he kicked at it in frustration following a dropped catch by Jonny Bairstow which reprieved Temba Bavuma.

Broad was charged with a Level 1 offence under the ICC code of conduct. He initially pleaded not guilty to the charge which meant Ranjan Madugalle, the match referee, conducted a hearing where he found Broad guilty.

For all first offences, Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand and a maximum penalty of 50% of a player’s match fee.
