Cape Town - The Proteas have been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during their ICC World Twenty20 Group 1 encounter against New Zealand at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium (ZACS) in Chittagong on Monday.

Javagal Srinath of the Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees imposed the fines after Faf du Plessis’ side was ruled to be two overs short of their target when time allowances were taken into consideration.

In accordance with the regulations of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel governing minor over-rate offences, players are fined 10 percent 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, Du Plessis was fined 40 percent of his match fee, while his players received 20 percent fines.

If Du Plessis is found guilty of one more minor over-rate offence in T20Is over the next 12 months, he will receive a one-match suspension as per the provisions of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel.

The offence is contrary to Article 2.5.1 of the Code, which relates to minor over-rate offences.
