South Africa fined again for slow over-rate in T20I in BrisbaneJanuary 14th, 2009 - 8:38 pm ICT by ANI
Dubai, Jan.14 (ANI): The South Africa team was fined for the second successive time for maintaining a slow over-rate during its six-wicket defeat against Australia in the second Twenty20 International (T20I) in Brisbane on January 13.
Ranjan Madugalle of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees imposed the fines after Johan Bothas side was ruled to be one over short of its target 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, Botha was fined 10 per cent of his match fee while his players received five-per-cent fines.
Botha and his team had received similar fines for being one over short in the first T20I match in Melbourne on Sunday 11 January which Australia won by 52 runs.
The offence is contrary to Section J of the ICC Code of Conduct which relates to slow over-rates. For such offences, the decision of the ICC match referee is final and binding. (ANI)
