England Fined For Slow Over Rate

CRICKET : Alastair Cook’s losing debut as England captain was compounded by the loss of 20% of his match fee for a slow over rate.

Alastair Cook’s losing debut as England captain was compounded by the loss of 20% of his match fee for a slow over rate.
South Africa posted 241 for six – the second highest 20-over total ever – as the hosts secured an emphatic 84-run win in the second Twenty20 International at Centurion on Sunday, with Cook deputising for Paul Collingwood as England skipper.
The International Cricket Council announced on Monday morning that England would be fined for a slow over rate, with the players losing 10% of their match fees and Cook, as captain, fined double that amount.
An ICC statement read: “Alastair Cook’s side was ruled to be one over short of its target at the end of the match when time allowances were taken into consideration.”
Should Cook, as captain, be found guilty of two further similar offences in Twenty20 Internationals over the next 12 months, he will receive a one-match suspension.
