England opener Jason Roy could face action after he argued with the on-field umpires in the second semi-finals of the World Cup 2019 against Australia. Roy was wrongly given out when he was batting on 85, and though England went on to comfortably win the game, he missed out on a deserving hundred. 

The Australians appealed for a catch by wicket-keeper Alex Carey that was going down the legside off the bowling of Pat Cummins when Roy was on 85. After a long wait, the umpire, Sri Lanka's Kumar Dharmasena, adjudged Roy out, much to his disbelief. 

Roy belived that the ball had hit his shoulders, but he could not review as a review had already been utilized unsuccessfuly by Jonny Bairstow earlier. Bairstow had been given LBW, but the opener thought otherwise and took the DRS. However, the ball was hitting the wickets, and England lost a review as Bairstow had to go back to the pavilion. 

TV reviews later did show that Roy had been given out wrongly. 

The batsman was furious at the umpire and had to be ushered away by the square leg umpire. Showing dissent at an umpire's decsion is an offence according to the ICC, and the match referee could now take some action against Roy.
