LAHORE: Peshawar Zalmi on Tuesday night were fined 10 per cent match fee for slow over-rate while Lahore Qalandars’ Dilbar Hussain was fined for breaching the PCB Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel in Tuesday’s match held at the Gaddafi Stadium here.

As it was the first offence of Peshawar Zalmi, all 11 playing members have been fined 10 per cent each of their match fees as per Article 2.22 of the PCB Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which deals with minimum over-rate offences.

If Zalmi are found guilty of another slow over-rate offence during the tournament, then it will be deemed as their offence and each member of their playing squad will be fined 20 per cent match fees.

The charges were levelled by on-field umpires Aleem Dar and Michael Gough, third umpire Asif Yaqoob and fourth umpire Nasir Husain while sanctions were imposed by match referee Mohammad Anees.

Meanwhile, Dilbar was fined five per cent for his applicable match fee for violating Article 2.5, which reads as: “Using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batter upon his/her dismissal during an International Match.”

The incident happened in the 18th over of Peshawar Zalmi’s innings when Dilbar Hussain, after dismissing Haider Ali, reacted in a manner that could have provoked a reaction from the departing batsman.

Qalandars defeated Zalmi by five wickets. They will now play Karachi Kings at the National Stadium on Thursday while Peshawar Zalmi will go head to head with Multan Sultans at the National Stadium on Friday, as chances are open for both of them to reserve a place for the three remaining spots of the play off.
