South Africa fined 20% match fees for slow over-rate in second ODI against India

Paarl, Jan 22:  South Africa have been fined 20 percent of their match fees for maintaining a slow over-rate against India in the second ODI at the Boland Park in Paarl on Friday.

In the match, South Africa defeated India by seven wickets, thanks to openers Quinton de Kock and Janneman Malan's 132-run opening partnership setting the base for a successful chase of 288 with 11 balls to spare.

"Andy Pycroft of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees imposed the sanction after Temba Bavuma's side was ruled to be one over short of the target after time allowances were taken into consideration," said the International Cricket Council (ICC) in a release.

In accordance with Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to minimum over-rate offences, players are fined 20 percent of their match fee for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time.

Bavuma pleaded guilty to the offence and accepted the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing. On-field umpires Marais Erasmus and Adrien Holdstock, third umpire Bongani Jele and fourth umpire Allauhudien Palekar levelled the charge.

With the seven-wicket win in the second ODI, the hosts have won the series with an unassailable 2-0 lead. The third and final match of the series will be played at the Newlands Cricket Ground in Cape Town on Sunday.
