Stuart Broad, son of Chris Broad an ICC match referee, has been warned by the ICC to play fair after he tried to distract South Afircan batsman AB De Villiers.

More on the Guardian.

Stuart Broad has been asked by the International Cricket Council not to repeat his attempt to distract the batsman after England's crushing ICC World Twenty20 defeat against South Africa.

Broad stoked up a debate within cricket by attempting to unsettle AB de Villiers in the 16th over of South Africa's reply as they closed in on a seven-wicket triumph over England at Trent Bridge. As Broad ran in to bowl, he threw his left arm out in his delivery stride as if he was pointing at a fielder but the tactic failed to work, with De Villiers working the ball behind square without difficulty.
