Pakistan Cricket Board punishes Lahore Qalandars team
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Cricket Board punishes Lahore Qalandars team for slow over rate against Islamabad United Match.
Lahore Qalandars have been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during their one-wicket loss against Islamabad United on Sunday at the Gaddafi Stadium.
Since this was the Qalandars first offence, the 11 playing members have been fined 10 per cent each of their match fees as per Article 2.22 of the Pakistan Super League Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which deals with minimum over-rate offences.
Qalandars during the stipulated time were two overs short of their target after taking into account time allowances.
If the Sohail Akhtar-led Qalandars are found guilty of another slow over-rate during the tournament, then it will be deemed as their second offence and each member of their playing squad will be fined 20 per cent each of their match fee.
