After the crushing defeat in the ICC World Cup 2023, the Pakistani team is currently playing a Test series against Australia.

ICC fines Pakistani team due to sloover rate

The Pakistani team has been fined 10 percent of their match fee and deducted two points from their total in the ICC World Test Championship. Pakistan slipped to No. 2 in the World Test Championship standings after a massive 360-run defeat in the first Test and the penalty meant their percentage dropped from 66.67 to 61.11. According to Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct which deals with minimum over-rate offences, players are fined five per cent of their match fees for every over their team fails to bowl in the stipulated time. Additionally, as per Article 16.11.2 of the ICC World Test Championship Playing Conditions, a team is penalized one point for every over bowled short. As a result, two World Test Championship points have been deducted from Pakistan’s total points. The second Test of the three-match series will begin in Melbourne on Boxing Day, while the third Test will be played in Sydney from January 3 to 7.
