Lahore, 10 October 2021: Northern have been fined PKR10,000 for maintaining a slow over-rate in their Saturday evening’s match against Balochistan in the ongoing National T20 2021-22.
Northern were found an over short of their target after taking into account time allowances and, as such, were charged under Article 2.22 of the PCB Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which deals with the minimum over-rate offences.
Northern captain Umar Amin accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Ali Naqvi. The charges were levelled by on-field umpires Shozab Raza and Faisal Khan Afridi and third umpire Rashid Riaz.
Northern – in the match played at the Gaddafi Stadium – defeated Balochistan by five wickets and secured a semi-final berth.
