The International Cricket Council (ICC) has fined New Zealand for maintaining a slow over-rate during its opening Group 1 encounter of the ICC World Twenty20 2014 against England at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium (ZACS) in Chittagong on Saturday.

Javagal Srinath of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees imposed the fines after Brendon McCullum’s side was ruled to be one over short of its target when time allowances were taken into consideration.

In accordance with the regulations of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players, players are fined 10 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, McCullum was fined 20 per cent of his match fee, while his players received 10 per cent fines. If McCullum is found guilty of one more minor over-rate offence in T20Is over the next 12 months, he will receive a one-match suspension.

The offence is contrary to Article 2.5.1 of the Code, which relates to minor over-rate offences.
