Sri Lankan umpire Kumar Dharmasena has been appointed to stand at Lord & # 39; s on Sunday during the World Cup final between England and New Zealand, despite feeling involved in an incident with home-slash man Jason Roy.
The Surrey opener had made 85 to put England on the road to a final eight-wicket win against Australia in Thursday's semifinals in Edgbaston when he was left behind by Dharmasena.
Roy asked for a review but England had already used their single review of the innings.
Nevertheless, Dharmasena signaled for an assessment, with Australia pointing out his mistake.
Roy, who spread his arms wide, clearly believed that Dharmasena should have signaled a broad episode instead and that the audibly furious batsman had to be led away by square referee Marais Erasmus.
Replays suggested he didn't touch the ball.
The English star, 28, was fined 30 percent of his competition costs for showing different opinions and received two points from referee Ranjan Madugalle.
That meant he was awarded the World Cup three, but competition bans only came in when a player collected a total of four points, making Roy available to play on Sunday when England offered to win the World Cup for the first time.
South Africa & # 39; s Erasmus will be the other onfield referee in the final, with experienced Sri Lankan official Madugalle again the match referee.
But pending the Edgbaston line-up, Australian Rod Tucker becomes the third referee instead of New Zealand's Chris Gaffaney, who was excluded from an official match in the flagship match when the Black Caps defeated India in the first semifinal of Wednesday in Oud Trafford.
