Proteas captain AB de Villiers has been fined 20 percent of his match fee for a slow over rate during the first ODI against England on Wednesday.
In the allotted time period the Proteas fell just one over short of completing their 50 overs with the ball. The result is that each player will receive a 10 percent match-fee penalty, while the captain of the side receives a 20 percent deduction in accordance with Article 2.5.1 of the ICC’s code of conduct for players.
The charge was laid by on-field umpires Tim Robinson and Rod Tucker, third umpire Chris Gaffaney and fourth official Michael Gough.
De Villiers has pleaded guilty to the charge and accepted the penalty imposed on him and his players.
The second ODI takes place on Saturday at the Rose Bowl.
