Cape Town - The India team has been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during the second innings against South Africa in the ongoing third and last Test in Cape Town.
Andy Pycroft of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees imposed the fines after Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s side was ruled to be three overs short of its target when time allowances were taken into consideration.
In accordance with the ICC Code of Conduct regulations governing minor over-rate offences, players are fined 10 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.
As such, Dhoni was fined 60 per cent of his match fee while his players received 30-per-cent fines. If Dhoni is found guilty of two further minor over-rate offences in Tests over the next 12 months, he will receive a one-match suspension as per the provisions of the ICC Code of Conduct.
The penalty was accepted by Dhoni without contest so there was no need for a hearing.
