Sri Lanka has been fined 20% of their match fee for keeping a slow over-rate against New Zealand in the first One-Day International (ODI) on Saturday in Auckland.

Dasun Shanaka’s side was ruled to be one over short of the target when time allowances were taken into account by Jeff Crowe of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees.

Dasun Shanaka’s team was adjudged to be one over short of the objective after time allowances for the game played on Saturday were taken into account by Jeff Crowe of the ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees.

Players are penalized 20% of their match fee for each over their team fails to bowl in the permitted time, in accordance with Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Employees, which addresses minimum over-rate offenses.

A side is also docked one point for each over that is short according to Article 16.12.2 of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League Playing Regulations. As a result, Sri Lanka’s score decreased by one point.

“Shanaka pleaded guilty to the offense and accepted the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing,” the ICC said in a media release.

Sri Lanka is currently tenth in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League standings:

The top eight teams in the standings of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League are automatically qualified for the World Cup. With one game remaining, Sri Lanka is presently ranked ninth. With two games remaining, South Africa (78 points) is one point behind Ireland (68 points), which has three games in hand.

Sri Lanka currently has 81 instead of 82 points after this deduction and a washout in Christchurch during the second ODI. The Sri Lankans run the risk of missing out on a direct entry to the World Cup with just one match remaining.

Sri Lanka must win the third ODI to overtake the West Indies and move up to ninth place in the standings. Even if they win the final ODI against New Zealand to earn an extra 10 Super League points and move up to eighth place in the standings, their qualifying prospects are dependent on South Africa’s performance, which is currently in tenth place with 80 points.

There is only one game left in the Super League, and Sri Lanka’s encounter against New Zealand in Hamilton on Friday will be their last opportunity to pass the West Indies and move into a crucial top-eight position to qualify for this year’s tournament automatically.
