Ex-Aussie Test opener slams Roy's 'absolute disgrace'


//

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.

Roy's blazing 85 put the host nation in the driver's seat before he was given out caught behind by umpire Kumar Dharmasena off a Pat Cummins bouncer, despite having missed the ball.

Unfortunately for Roy and England, the side was out of reviews after his opening partner Jonny Bairstow had wasted one on a routine LBW decision earlier, leaving Roy incensed as he walked off the field.

Roy's tirade at the umpires, in which he labelled the decision as a "f---ing embarrassment" resulted him being fined 30 percent of his match fee, but Cowan wanted a harsher penalty.

"Realistically, he should be given a one-match ban," Cowan told ABC Grandstand's World Cup podcast.

"The dissent he showed was almost soccer-like, up, remonstrating with the umpires.

"What he did was an absolute disgrace. What he did was as bad a level of dissent as you could ever possibly show."

Roy was also docked two demerit points due to the incident from Match Referee Ranjan Madugalle, bringing his World Cup tally to three, but a player can only be suspended after accumulating four demerit points.

While the decision was quite obviously the incorrect one, Cowan said that Roy had no right to stand his ground after Dharmasena had raised his finger.

"I've never seen that on a cricket field. You can't stand in the middle of the ground, arms outstretched, asking how is that out and try and refer it knowing you've already used a referral," he said.

"Honestly, he's been watching too much Premier League soccer. That was a disgrace. You cannot treat umpires like that on a cricket field."

Roy and Dharmasena will meet once again in Sunday's World Cup final with the Sri Lankan named as one of the on-field umpires for the tournament finale alongside South Africa's Marais Erasmus.
