Bangladesh has been fined for their slow overrate against England in Dharamsala.

Bangladesh has been fined 5% of their match fee for maintaining a slow over-rate against England in their ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 clash.

The incident occurred on October 10, 2023, during Bangladesh’s second Cricket World Cup match in Dharamsala.

After time allowances were taken into account, the Shakib Al Hasan-led team was ruled to be one over the target. Javagal Srinath of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees imposed the sanctions.

According to Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which deals with minimum over-rate offenses, players are fined 5% of their match fees for each over their team fails to bowl in the allotted time.

Shakib pled guilty to the offense and accepted the proposed punishment, so there was no need for a formal hearing.

The charge was leveled by on-field umpires Ahsan Raza and Paul Wilson, third umpire Adrian Holdstock, and fourth umpire Kumar Dharmasena.

Bangladesh lost their second Cricket World Cup match against England by 137 runs in Dharamsala. Their next match is against New Zealand in Chennai.
