Multan Sultans docked for slow over-rate

Multan Sultans have been fined for two slow overs in their Pakistan Super League game against Peshawar Zalmi at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Sunday. Multan were defeated by five wickets in the last over finish against Peshawar.

Sultans were penalized under Article 2.5 of the PSL Code of Conduct for Player and Player Support Personnel, which relates to minor over-rate offences.

Multan were sanctioned by match referee Roshan Mahanama after the on-field umpires Ranmore Martinesz and Shozab Raza; third umpire Rashid Riaz; and fourth umpire Tariq Rasheed reported the breach.

Skipper Shoaib Malik and rest of his players were fined 10 per cent each of their match fee, a lenient penalty - this being Sultans' first such offence.

"If Multan Sultans commit another slow over-rate offence, then each of their playing members will be fined 20 per cent of their match fees," a statement from the PSL said.

Multan next face Islamabad United on Tuesday when the PSL action returns to Dubai.
