Despite making a howler in the semi-final between England and Australia at Edgbaston on Thursday, that was as blatant as it gets, Kumar Dharmasena of Sri Lanka has been appointed as one of the two on-field umpires for the final at Lord's tomorrow.

The opening batsman blew up deluxe when he was given out caught behind by umpire Kumar Dharmasena, claiming he didn't touch a Pat Cummins bouncer with his bat or glove before the ball was pouched by wicketkeeper Alex Carey.

The problem for Roy was that England had already squandered their lone review of the innings with an unsuccessful attempt to overturn fellow opener Jonny Bairstow's lbw dismissal for 34.

But match bans only kick in when a player collects four demerit points in total leaving Roy, a key figure in Eoin Morgan's side, available to feature as England bid to win the World Cup for the first time. He was booked for an audible obscenity during a clash with Pakistan and fined 15 per cent of that match fee.

Roy, who struck a belligerent 85 in England's successful run chase, was found to have breached Article 2.8 ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to showing dissent at an umpire's decision in an global match.

Roy has now collected three demerit points at the event.

However, the umpire also holds an unwanted record involving England.

"The dissent he showed was nearly soccer-like, up, remonstrating with the umpires", Cowan said on ABC Grandstand's latest World Cup podcast. He also umpired the 2016 World T20 final.

Showing dissent at an umpire's decision is an offence under the International Cricket Council's code of conduct and match referee Ranjan Madugalle could now take action.

Roy, who was fined for dissent over the incident, faces an awkward reunion with the Sri Lankan official, who will stand alongside South Africa's Marais Erasmus at Lord's.
