Broad is afraid of being punished by ICC
Stuart Broad played a major role in the dominance of the English at the Old Trafford. However, Stuart Broad is afraid of being punished by ICC for returning Chase, appealing, and celebrating together.
Stuart Broad continues to prove his worth in the ongoing Manchester Test. Batting towards the tail, he made a valuable 82 runs off 45 balls. Craig Brathwaite returned the ball in the opening over. Ruston Chase later returned with great delivery.

The 35th over of the West Indies innings was going on then. Broad’s great delivery in the second ball hit Ruston Chase’s pad. Broad started the celebration without applying. Onfield umpire Richard Kettleborough raised his finger and told Chase to return to the dressing room, but Chase did not take the review knowing he was out.
Although ‘Celebrapil’ has become a trademark of Stuart Broad, it is against the ICC Code of Conduct. This is mentioned in Article 2.1 of the ICC Code of Conduct.
The match referee has jurisdiction to punish in this case. The minimum penalty for breaking a Level 1 Code of Conduct is a formal warning, a maximum 50 percent match fee deduction, and two demerit points. Stuart Broad’s father Chris Broad is the match referee in this match.
At the end of the second day’s play, Broad said he was nervous, ‘Yes, to be honest, I’m a little nervous.’ Broad planned to get Ruston Chase out. And the level of celebration was high after it was successful. He said he celebrated in a way that made him bold, not lbw!
