ICC fails Cricket, again.

I checked the "ICC Playing Handbook"

No overs penalties are imposed for slow over rates and hence slow over rates
have no effect on revised target calculations.


TV wants full 50 overs, as one ICC Match Referee told me once.

Captains reminded of obligation of sides to complete overs in time allocated

The India and Pakistan teams have been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during the second ODI at Mohali on Thursday.

ICC match referee Roshan Mahanama of the Emirates Elite Panel imposed the fines after both the teams were ruled to be one over short of their targets when time allowances were taken into consideration.

In accordance with the ICC Code of Conduct regulations governing over-rate penalties, players are fined five per cent of their match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time, with the captain fined double that amount.

As such, rival captains Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Shoaib Malik have been fined 10 per cent of their match fee while their players have each received five per cent fines.

Mr Mahanama spoke to both captains after the match and reminded them of their sides' obligations to complete their overs in the time allocated in the future.
