Sindh fined for slow over-rate against Southern Punjab


Rawalpindi: Sindh have been fined PKR25,000 for maintaining a slow over-rate during their match on Friday against Southern Punjab in National T20 Cup.

“In the stipulated time, Sindh were two overs short of their target after taking into account time allowances and, as such, were charged under Article 2.22 of the PCB’s Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel that deals with minimum over-rate offences,” PCB said in a press release.

On-field umpires Ghaffar Kazmi and Rashid Riaz, third umpire Asif Yaqoob and fourth umpire Saqib Khan leveled the charges.

Sindh captain Sarfaraz Ahmed pleaded guilty and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Nadeem Arshad.

It must be noted that Southern Punjab defeated Sindh and registered their first victory of the tournament.
