India, Pakistan fined for slow over-rate during Mohali ODINovember 14th, 2007 - 10:20 am ICT by admin
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.
In accordance with the ICC Code of Conduct regulations governing over-rate penalties, players are fined five per cent of their match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time, with the captain fined double that amount.
As such, rival captains Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Shoaib Malik have been fined 10 per cent of their match fee, while their players have each received five per cent fines.
Mahanama spoke to both captains after the match and reminded them of their sides’ obligations to complete their overs in the time allocated in the future. (ANI)
