Zimbabwe have been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during the second Test against Bangladesh in Harare. They were found to be three overs behind the required over rate.

As a result, the Zimbabwe captain Brendan Taylor was docked 60% of his match fees, and the rest of the players lost 30%. According to the rules, every over short warrants a 10% fine, with double that percentage for the captain.

Its very harsh to dock a team 30% of their match fees. These Zimbabwean players don't even earn that much to begin with. And their board is strapped for cash. Common sense needs to prevail.

They should learn the hard way. Still, I feel a bit sorry for them as they don't earn that much.

30% of Match fee, will amount to almost nothing for the playesr cos they dont even get that much...
