Both India and Pakistan have been fined 40 per cent of their match freights for maintaining a slowover-rate in their Group A match of the Asia Cup on Sunday, August 28. Jeff Crowe of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match arbiters assessed the warrants after Rohit Sharma and Babar Azam’s sides were ruled to be two overs short of their separate targets after time allowances were taken into consideration. In agreement with Composition2.22 of the ICC law of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to minimalover-rate offences, players are fined 20 per cent of their match freights for every over their side fails to drift in the distributed time.

Coming to the match, Pakistan were whisked out for 147 in19.5 overs. Opener Mohammed Rizwan( 43) and Iftikhar Ahmed( 28) were the only bones
who could contribute commodity decent with the club. The pace and short- length deliveries of Bhuvneshwar Kumar(4/26), Hardik Pandya(3/25) and Arshdeep Singh(2/33) and Avesh Khan(1/19) blew down Pakistani batters and lattices fell at a regular rate.
Chasing 148, India lost KL Rahul for a duck in the veritably first over. After this, Virat Kohli( 35) anchored the innings and formed a 49- run stage with commander Rohit Sharma( 12), who largely plodded at the other end. Twin strikes from Mohammed Nawaz, who took Sharma and Kohli’s lattices confined India to3/53.
Following this, a 36- run stage between Ravindra Jadeja and Suryakumar Yadav helped move the scoreboard, before Suryakumar fell to debutant Naseem Shah for 18. A 52- run stage between Jadeja( 35) and Hardik Pandya( 33 *) followed, which took India close to a palm and in- form Pandya finished the proceedings with a six with two balls to spare, giving India a five- gate palm.
