Ashes: England Fined 100 Percent Match Fee For Slow Over Rate

Nothing seems to be going right for Joe Root and England on their trip to Australia as the visitors have docked 5 World Test Championships points for slow over-rate in their first Ashes Test at the Gabba in Brisbane.

England managed 0 points from the Ashes opener after suffering a 9-wicket defeat following a batting collapse on Saturday morning.

England was also fined a 100 percent match fee for failing to complete the stipulated number of overs during the first Ashes Test.

England has slipped 7th spot on the 8-team World Test Championship 2021-23 table with just 9 points from 5 matches. Joe Root’s men were trailing 1-2 against India at home in a 5-Test series wherein they have docked 2 points as well.

“As per Article 16.11.2 of the ICC World Test Championship playing conditions, a team is docked one point for each over short,” the ICC said in a statement.

“Match referee David Boon has also penalized England 100% of their match fee for falling five overs short of the targets after adjusting for time allowances. Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel charges players 20% of their match fee for every over the team falls short on.”

Meanwhile, Australia, who opened the WTC tally with 12 points after the dominant win over England saw their hero of the Gabba Test, Travis Head fined 15 percent of his match fee for usage of audible obscenity.

The incident occurred in the 77th over of Australia’s first innings, when Head used inappropriate language after being beaten by Ben Stokes. There was no formal hearing after the southpaw admitted the offence and accepted the sanctions.
