Sri Lanka cricket team have been fined for keeping up a moderate over-rate in their 45-run misfortune against New Zealand in the first One Day International of the continuous three-coordinate arrangement in Mount Maunganui on Thursday.
The fine was forced after Lasith Malinga-drove side was ruled to be one over shy of their objective when time recompenses were thought about.
As per Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Players Support Personnel, which identifies with minor over-rate offenses, players are fined 10 percent of their match expenses for each over their side neglects to bowl in the dispensed time, with the skipper fined twofold that sum.
Accordingly, Malinga has been fined 20 percent of his match expense, while his players have gotten 10 percent fines. In the event that Sri Lanka submits another minor over-rate rupture in an ODI inside a year of this offense with Malinga as skipper, it will be regarded a second offense by Malinga and he will confront a suspension.
Malinga conceded to the offense after the finish of the match and acknowledged the proposed endorse, so there was no requirement for a formal hearing.
The charge was leveled by on-field umpires Chris Brown and Paul Wilson, third umpire Richard Illingworth and fourth umpire Shaun Haig.
