Jason Roy fined for breach of PSL Code of Conduct
Quetta Gladiators’ Jason Roy has been fined five per cent of his match fee for a Level 1 breach of the PSL Code of Conduct during his side’s eight-wicket defeat against Lahore Qalandars in the 20th match of the HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2022 at the Gaddafi Stadium on Sunday.
Roy was found to have violated Article 2.21 of the PSL Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “conduct that brings the game into disrepute,” following his reaction after he was adjudged caught behind by Asif Yaqoob off Shaheen Shah Afridi.
Roy admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed to be imposed by Roshan Mahanama and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing. The charges were levelled by the on-field umpires Asif Yaqoob and Michael Gough, third umpire Rashid Riaz and fourth umpire Waleed Yaqoob.
All first-time offences of Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official warning and/or imposition of a fine of up to 25 per cent of the applicable match fee.
It is to be remembered that Lahore Qalandars captain Shaheen Shah Afridi (player of the match) produced another searing opening over to lay the foundation of his side’s thumping eight-wicket win over Quetta Gladiators.

Shaheen sent back Gladiators batting mainstays Jason Roy and James Vince for ducks in the first over of the match to send the home crowd into raptures. Gladiators never recovered from the body blows as they were restricted to 141, a target that was easily surpassed by Qalandars.
