Highlight Story

The England team has been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during its 22-run victory over South Africa in the Champions Trophy at the SuperSport Park in Centurion on Sunday.

Match Referee Roshan Mahanama imposed the fines after Andrew Strauss'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.

In accordance with the International Cricket Council (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, Strauss was fined 10 per cent of his match fee while each of his players received a five per cent fine.
