SL fined for slow over-rate

Published

on

Sri Lanka have been fined 20 per cent of their match fee for maintaining a slow over-rate against New Zealand in the first ODI in Auckland on Saturday.

Jeff Crowe of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees imposed the sanction after Dasun Shanaka’s side was ruled to be one over 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.

In addition, as per Article 16.12.2 of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League Playing Conditions, a side is penalised one point for each over short. Consequently, Sri Lanka will lose one point from their points tally during the Super League.

Shanaka pleaded guilty to the offence and accepted the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing.

On-field umpires Shaun Haig and Wayne Knights, third umpire Chris Brown and fourth umpire Cory Black leveled the charge.

Chamari Athapaththu has won the ICC Women’s Player of the Month award for May 2024.

Athapaththu beat Scotland captain Kathryn Bryce and England’s Sophie Ecclestone for the monthly gong.

This is the second time the Sri Lanka star has won this award. She previously won the title  in September last year.

The all-rounder is firmly established as a modern-day great as Sri Lanka’s highest run-getter in both white-ball formats.  The 34-year-old smashed a century last month at the  ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Qualifier 2024. She finished the event as the leading run-scorer, giving Sri Lanka the title and helping the island nation earn their place at the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup.

Athapaththu scored 151 runs at an average of 37.75 and was impressive with the ball too as she picked up six scalps at merely 9.16 runs per wicket, in her four games during the month of May.
