Indian female cricketers fined for excessive slowness | Cricket News

EVOO: The Indian women’s cricket team were fined 20% of their match fees on Monday for maintaining a slow over-rate against England in the second Twenty20 International.
India tied the series with a narrow eight-point victory.
Match referee Phil Whitticase imposed the penalty after Harmanpreet Kaur’s team were judged below target after time limits were considered, according to an ICC statement.
“Pursuant to Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Staff, which concerns overrated minimum infractions, players are fined 20% of their match fees for every team that fails to play within the allotted time, “the ICC statement said.
Kaur pleaded guilty to the offense and accepted the proposed penalty, so there was no need for a formal hearing.
Field referees Ian Blackwell and Paul Baldwin, third official Sue Redfern and fourth official Tim Robinson leveled the charge.
