Sringar: ICC has fined India and Pakistan cricket teams 40 percent of the match for the slow over rate during their Asia Cup 2022 clash on Sunday in Dubai.
“Both India and Pakistan have been fined 40 percent of their match fees for maintaining a slow over-rate in their Group A match of the Asia Cup on Sunday, 28 August,” ICC statement said.
“Jeff Crowe of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees imposed the sanctions after Rohit Sharma and Babar Azam’s sides were ruled to be two overs short of their respective targets after time allowances were taken into consideration,” statement said.
“In accordance with Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to minimum over-rate offences, players are fined 20 per cent of their match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time,” statement further said.
“Both captains pleaded guilty to the offence and accepted the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing,” ICC statement reads.
On-field umpires Masudur Rahman and Ruchira Pilliyaguruge, third umpire Raveendra Wimalasiri and fourth umpire Gazi Sohel levelled the charges.
