Faf du Plessis’s side was ruled to be one over short of its target when time allowances were taken into consideration

In accordance with Article 2.5.1 of the ICC Code of Conduct, 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, Du Plessis has been fined 20 percent of his match fee, while his players have received 10 percent fines.

If the Proteas commit another minor over-rate breach in an ODI within 12 months of this offence with Du Plessis as captain, they will be deemed a second offence by Du Plessis and he will face a suspension.

Du Plessis pleaded guilty to the offences and accepted the proposed sanctions by Chris Broad of the elite panel of ICC match referees, so there was no need for a formal hearing.

The charge was laid by on-field umpires Shaun George and Joel Wilson, third umpire Nigel Llong and fourth official Adrian Holdstock.
