Sri Lanka penalised for slow over-rate in first ODI against New Zealand

Saturday's match in Auckland saw Sri Lanka being docked 20 per cent of their match fee for maintaining a slow over-rate

After time allowances were taken into consideration, Sri Lanka was ruled to be one over short of the target by Jeff Crowe of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees. 

Also, as per Article 16.12.2 of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League Playing Conditions, a side is penalised one point from their Super League tally for each over short.

There was no need for a formal hearing as Dasun Shanaka pleaded guilty to the offence and accepted the proposed sanction. The charges were levelled by on-field umpires Shaun Haig and Wayne Knights, third umpire Chris Brown and fourth umpire Cory Black.

The first ODI saw Sri Lanka being bundled out for 76 in their pursuit of 275. NZ had useful contributions from the likes of Finn Allen, Daryll Mitchell and Rachin Ravindra, while Henry Shipley was the wrecker-in-chief with the ball, courtesy his five-for.
