Aiden Markram fined 20% match fee for slow over-rate in Johannesburg ODI

JOHANNESBURG: Aiden Markram, the South Africa skipper was fined 20 percent of his match fee while the rest of the players were fined 10 percent for maintaining a slow over-rate during the team’s five-wicket win against India here on Saturday.

ICC match referee Andy Pycroft imposed the fine after Markram’s side was ruled to be one over short of their target in yesterday’s match, when time allowances were taken into consideration.

Markram and the rest of the South Africa players were guilty of breaching Article 2.5.1 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Players Support Personnel, which relates to minor over-rate offences. The charge was levelled by on-field umpires Aleem Dar and Bongani Jele, third umpire Ian Gould, and fourth umpire Shaun George.
