Media Release : AKS BPL T20 2017: Comilla Victorians fined for slow over-rate

Comilla Victorians have been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate against Dhaka Dynamites during their AKS BPL 2017 match at the ZACS, Chittagong on 29 November 2017.

 The penalty was imposed after Comilla were found to be two (02) overs short of the mark when time allowances were taken into consideration.

 In accordance with Article 2.5.1 of the BCB Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to minor over-rate offences, players are fined 10 per cent of their match fees for every over their side fail to bowl within the allotted time, with the captain fined double that amount.

 Accordingly, Comilla Captain Tamim Iqbal has been fined 40 percent of his match fee, while his players have received 20 percent fines. Tamim admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Match Referee Neeyamur Rashid and as such there was no need for a formal hearing.

 The charge was laid by on-field umpires Nadir Shah and Riaz Uddin, third umpire Gazi Sohel and fourth umpire Mahfuzur Rahman.
