Dubai, March 31 (IANS) South Africa were fined for a slow over-rate during its drawn first Test against India in Chennai. Skiper Graeme Smith was penalised 20 per cent of his match fee while each of his players was fined 10 per cent.

Match Referee Roshan Mahanama imposed the fines after Smith’s side was ruled to be two overs short of its target when time allowances were taken into consideration.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) Code of Conduct regulations governing over-rate penalties, state that 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.
