New Zealand Fined For Slow Over-Rate
New Zealand have been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during the fourth One-Day International against Pakistan in Napier.
They went on to lose the match by two wickets, and bowling their overs too slowly meant they ended one over short of their target.
In accordance to International Cricket Council (ICC) regulations, captain Daniel Vettori was fined 20 percent of his match fee while the remaining players were fined ten percent.
Match referee Alan Hurst imposed the fines for the offences which are contrary to Article 2.5.1 of the ICC code of conduct.
The fifth game between the two sides is in Hamilton on 3rd February.
