India, Pak fined for slow over-rate

Mohali:

The India and Pakistan teams were fined five per cent of their match fee, while their skippers -- Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Shoaib Malik -- were docked 10 per cent of their match earnings for maintaining a slow over-rate during the second cricket one-dayer in Mohali.

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 after Pakistan beat the hosts by four wickets in a nail-biting contest Thursday night.

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.

"Therefore, rival captains Dhoni and Malik have been fined 10 per cent of their match fee while their players have each received five per cent fines," the ICC said in a statement.

Mahanama spoke to both the captains after the match and reminded them of their sides' obligations to complete their overs in the time allocated in the future.
