Karachi: Peshawar Zalmi players have been fined 10 per cent of their match fees for maintaining a slow over-rate during their HBL Pakistan Super League 6 match against Karachi Kings on Wednesday.
Zalmi were found an over short of their target after taking into account time allowances and, as such, were charged under Article 2.22 of the PCB Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which deals with the minimum over-rate offences.
Zalmi captain Shoaib Malik accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Iftikhar Ahmed. The charges were levelled by on-field umpires Rashid Riaz and Shozab Raza and third umpire Ahsan Raza.
Kings won the match by six wickets – played at National Stadium – as they chased down 189-run target with three balls spare.
