Both teams fined for slow over-rate


Pakistan and India players were fined five percent of their match fee for maintaining a slow over-rate during their second one-dayer here at the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) stadium on Thursday.

The two rival skippers Shoaib Malik and MS Dhoni were fined ten percent of their match earnings following a hearing carried out on Thursday night. ICC match referee Roshan Mahanama imposed the fines after both the teams were ruled to be one over short of their targets when time allowances were taken into consideration. The match went till the penultimate delivery and Pakistan beat India by four-wickets to level the series.

According to the International Cricket Council (ICC) rules governing over-rate penalties, players are fined five percent of their match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time, with the captain fined double that amount.

An International Cricket Council statement issued late on Thursday night said, “The rival captains Dhoni and Malik have been fined 10 percent of their match fee while their players have each received five percent fines.”

The fines were announced after Mahanama, a former Sri Lanka Test cricketer, met with the two captains after the match and reminded them of their sides’ obligations to complete their overs in the time allocated in the future.
