Dubai:

The Australia team was fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during its 172-run defeat against India in the fourth and final Test played on Monday.

Skipper Ricky Ponting was fined 20 per cent of his match fee while his players will each pay 10 per cent as fine.

Chris Broad of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees imposed the fines after Ricky Ponting's side was ruled to be two overs 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.

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.
