After the Perth Test catastrophe, Pakistan was fined for their slow over-rate. Pakistan was fined by the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Monday for continuing to play at a sluggish over-rate during the recently finished Perth Test match against Australia.

Pakistan has been penalized two ICC World Test Championship (WTC) and fined 10% of their match cost as a result.

The punishment was handed by match referee Javagal Srinath after Pakistan was discovered to be two overs short of the target even after taking time allowances into account.

As per the minimum over-rate offences outlined in Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, players who fail to bowl in the allocated time during an over will be fined five percent of their match fee.
