Pakistan has been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during Friday’s One-day International (ODI) against Sri Lanka at Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai Sports City.

David Boon of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees imposed the fines after Pakistan was ruled to be one over short of its target, after time allowances were taken into consideration.

In accordance with the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, and in particular the regulations contained therein 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, Misbah-ul-Haq was fined 20 per cent of his match fee while his team-mates received 10 per cent fines.

The offence is contrary to Article 2.5.1 of the Code. The penalty was accepted by Pakistan without contest so there was no need for a hearing.
