The South Africa team has been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during its five-wicket victory over Bangladesh in the first Test in Dhaka, played between 22 and 25 February.
Ranjan Madugalle of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees 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.
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. The full ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Officials can be found at
