Cape Town - The Proteas have been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during the first one-day international against England at Headingley in Leeds on Wednesday.

Andy Pycroft of the elite panel of ICC match referees imposed the fine after AB de Villiers’s men were ruled to be one over short of their target when time allowances were taken into consideration.

In accordance with Article 2.5.1 of the ICC code of conduct for players and player support Personnel, which relates to 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, De Villiers has been fined 20 percent of his match fee, while his players have received 10 percent fines. De Villiers pleaded guilty to the offence and accepted the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing.

The charge was laid by on-field umpires Tim Robinson and Rod Tucker, third umpire Chris Gaffaney and fourth official Michael Gough.

England won the match by 72 runs.
