Imad Wasim, the Pakistan captain for the match, has been fined 20 per cent of his match fee.

According to the Article 2.22 of the ICC code of Conduct for Players and Players Support Personnel, which relates to minor over-rate offences, players are fined 10 per cent of their match fees for every single over their team fails to bowl within the allotted time, with the captain fined double that amount.

After On field umpires Kumar Dharmasena and Rashid Riaz, third umpire Michael Gough and fourth umpire Ahsan Raza leveled the charge against Pakistan for an over short from the target, one of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees’ Jeff Crowe imposed the fine.

Imad pleaded guilty to the offence after the end of the match and accepted the proposed sanction, barring the need of any formal hearing.

Pakistan lost the fourth ODI by 6 runs to go 4-0 down in the series even after being settled into a comfortable position. Two of their batsmen smashed hundreds.

Imad Wasim will face a suspension if Pakistan would go through breach of another minor over-rate within a period of 12 months under his captaincy.
