Indian women’s cricket team fined 20% of the match fee here at Twenty20 International on Monday for maintaining a slow over-rate against England. However, India women’s team won the close match against England by 8 runs.
The ICC release shows that the penalty was imposed by match referee Phil Whitticase after Harmanpreet Kaur’s side had been one over short after taking time allowances into account.
“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 fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time,” the ICC release said.
Harmanpreet Kaur pleaded guilty and agreed to the proposed penalty so that a formal hearing was not necessary. The accusation was levelled by Ian Blackwell, Paul Baldwin, third umpire Sue Redfern, and fourth umpire Tim Robinson.
