Dunedin - Scotland's misery over their one-wicket loss to Afghanistan at the Cricket World Cup was compounded on Friday when they were fined for a slow over rate, the International Cricket Council (ICC) announced.

Match referee David Boon imposed the fine after Preston Mommsen's side were ruled to be one over short of their target in Thursday's match at Dunedin's University Oval.

Mommsen was fined 20 percent of his match fee, while his players received 10 percent fines.

If the Scotland captain is found guilty of one more minor over-rate offence during the World Cup, he will receive a one-match suspension.
