Modis hail Broad for fining Broad

Hiten and Subhash Modi are the unique pair of son/father to appear as batsman and umpire in the same One-day International. Against Bangladesh at Nairobi in August 2006, father gave son out lbw.

Reacting to the decision by sr. Broad, Hitesh Modi, now in England, says, "I think it’s very simple they (Chris and Stuart Broad) are both professionals who have been given a job to do and will act in the best interest of the game". 

"He (Stuart) is a great cricketer, who recently completed 500 Test wickets. He shows his emotions on the field. All I can say is to keep cool and control his temper as he already has 3 demerit points within 24 months".

"No one is greater than the noble game of cricket and he must respect opponents. My advice to him is: "you are one of the finest cricketers in the world but you have to be a fine sportsman to be loved by your team and your fans all around the world'.
