While India’s tour of South Africa was already a disappointing one as far as the Men in Blue are concerned as they lost both the Test and the ODI series, in a further blow to the team they have been fined 40 per cent of their match fee. This is because they maintained a slow over-rate in the final ODI against South Africa in Cape Town on Sunday.

Andy Pycroft of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees imposed the sanction after KL Rahul’s side was ruled to be two overs short of the target after time allowances were taken into consideration.

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 per cent of their match fee for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time.

Rahul 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 Bongani Jele, third umpire Allauhudien Palekar and fourth umpire Adrien Holdstock leveled the charge.

India lost the ODI series 3-0 after they conceded the Test series 2-1. Their next assignment will be against the West Indies at home.
