Chris would not normally officiate in a match involving his son but he is overseeing all six of England's home Tests this summer because of travel restrictions imposed to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus

England quick Stuart Broad says his father, match referee Chris Broad, is off his Christmas card list after he fined him for giving Pakistan's Yasir Shah a send-off in the first Test match.

The bowler was fined 15% of his match fee and given a demerit point for his behavior Saturday as England went on to clinch the series opener in Manchester by three wickets.

After England's “Barmy Army” supporters group tweeted the news of his sanction Tuesday, Broad said of his father: "He's off the Christmas card & present list."

Chris would not normally officiate in a match involving his son but he is overseeing all six of England's home Tests this summer because of travel restrictions imposed to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus.

It was the bowler's third demerit point in the last 24 months. 

Another demerit point picked up in the second and penultimate Test, which begins in Southampton Thursday, would trigger a one-Test suspension.
