The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Wednesday slapped a fine on Peshawar Zalmi for maintaining a slow over-rate during their match against Karachi Kings at the National Bank Cricket Arena.
“Peshawar Zalmi were ruled to be one over short of their target by match referee Ali Naqvi, who took into consideration time allowances before arriving at the decision,” said the PCB in a statement.
The PCB said each player will be fined 10% of their match fees as per Article 2.22 of the PSL Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel.
During Tuesday’s match, Zalmi defeated Kings by two runs to start their PSL campaign.
Put to bat first, Peshawar posted a massive 199 runs on the scoreboard before restricting the home side to 197-5 in 20 overs, thanks to Tom Kohler-Cadmore’s magnificent knock and a brilliant bowling display by the bowlers.
