Dhaka, Feb 25 (UNI) South Africa was fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during its five-wicket victory over Bangladesh in the first Test here today.
ICC Match Referee Ranjan Madugalle imposed the fines after Graeme Smith's side was ruled to be three overs short of its target when time allowances were taken into consideration.
In accordance with the ICC Code of Conduct regulations governing over-rate penalties, players are fined five 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, Smith was fined 30 per cent of his match fee while each of his players received 15 per cent fines.
