PCB Blasters fined for maintaining slow over-rate

KARACHI:PCB Blasters have been fined Rs10,000 for maintaining a slow over-rate during their National Triangular T20 Women’s Cricket Championship match against PCB Challengers at the Pindi Cricket Stadium on Saturday.

PCB Blasters were one over short of their target after taking into account time allowances and, as such, were charged under Article 2.22 of the PCB’s Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel that deals with minimum over-rate offences.

On-field umpires Abdul Muqeet and Humaira Farah levelled the charge. PCB Blasters captain Aliya Riaz pleaded guilty and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Saman Zulfiqar.
