|Scorecard:||Australia v England|
|Player:||MP Vaughan, MJ Procter|
|Event:||ICC World Cup 2006/07|
DateLine: 11th April 2007
The England team has been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during its seven-wicket defeat to Australia in the ICC Cricket World Cup Super Eight match played in Antigua on 9 April.
Match referee Mike Procter of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees imposed the fines after Michael Vaughan's side was ruled to be two overs short of its target at the scheduled finish of the Australia innings 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, Vaughan has been fined 20 per cent of his match fee while his players have each received ten per cent fines.
The offence is contrary to Section J of the ICC Code of Conduct which relates to slow over-rates. For such offences, the decision of the ICC match referee is final and binding.
