CWC’15: South Africa fined for slow over-rate against India
South Africa have been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during their World Cup group stage match against India at MCG, which the lost by 130 runs.
ICC Match referee Jeff Crowe found the South Africans fell one over short after time allowances were taken into consideration and as a result their captain AB de Villiers was fined 20 per cent of his match fee and for the remaining players of the team the match fee was deducted by 10 per cent.
“In accordance with the ICC Code of Conduct for 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,” the ICC said in a release.
De Villiers now runs the risk of being suspended from one match if South Africa are fined a second time before the final of the World Cup.
South Africa, who started their World Cup campaign with a win against Zimbabwe, lost to India in their next game quite badly. They’ll now face West Indies on February 27th at SCG.
