Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza and his team is fined for slow over rate during the match against India at Bengaluru on last Wednesday in ICC WT20 2016. It was the Super 10 stage match (Group 2) in the ICC WT20 2016.

Match referee Chris Broad fined Mashrafe and other Bangladeshi team-mates after the team was found one over short of the target in a stipulated time. According to ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Players Support Personnel, it is a minor offence.

According to Article 2.5.1 of ICC Code of Conduct, “where the actual over rate in any Test Match or any other International Match of at least four days in duration is up to (and including) five overs short of the Minimum Over Rate, or, in any One Day International Match, Twenty20 International Match or any other International Match of fifty (50) or twenty (20) overs per side, up to (and including) two overs short of the Minimum Over Rate, such an offence shall be considered a ‘Minor Over Rate Offence’.”

For this offence, Mashrafe was fined for 20% of his match fees while other team-mates received 10% fine of their match fee.

During any ICC event, if a captain commits two minor over-rate offences or one serious over-rate offence, he should be suspended for one match during that event. However, it was the first time that Mashrafe is found guilty in the ongoing ICC WT20 2016 tournament.

Bangladesh will play their next game in the WT20 2016 against New Zealand at Kolkata.
