Sri Lanka has been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate in their 45-run loss against New Zealand in the first One-Day International in Mount Maunganui on Thursday, the ICC said.

Richie Richardson of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees imposed the fine after Lasith Malinga’s side was ruled to be one over short of their target when time allowances were taken into consideration.

In accordance with Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Players Support Personnel, which relates to minor over-rate offences, players are fined 10 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, Malinga has been fined 20 per cent of his match fee, while his players have received 10 per cent fines. If Sri Lanka commits another minor over-rate breach in an ODI within 12 months of this offence with Malinga as captain, it will be deemed a second offence by Malinga and he will face a suspension.

Malinga pleaded guilty to the offence after the end of the match and accepted the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing.

The charge was levelled by on-field umpires Chris Brown and Paul Wilson, third umpire Richard Illingworth and fourth umpire Shaun Haig.

    It’s our street cricket tactic that slowing down the over rate while the opposition on fire. Our crooked techniques worked in past but not anymore as the world is going more high standards in sports

    When will Sri Lanka ever learn? These guys who are over hyped, over weight, overage and unfit are selected.

    Look at our bowlers averages! How can you win matches with bowlers like that. Every time SL bowl the opposition score 300 runs and then our buggers hobble to get it. Stop promoting action only bowlers, implement a system to identify bowlere who can create havoc out there on the pitch. Do we have to wait for a whole generation to produce another Murali and Vaas. Our crook domestic cricket is costing the game. If Afgan and Nepal can produce decent spin bowlers! What has SL administrators being doing??

    There seems to be a marked improvement in skills and spirit since Malinga took over.It is obvious our team has the skills and capacity but lacks motivation and hunger to win and shine again.Good luck to Sri Lanka.
