Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq has been fined 40 percent of his match fee, while his team-mates were given 20 percent fines for maintaining a slow over-rate during the second Test against Bangladesh in Mirpur.
Jeff Crowe of the Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees imposed the fine after Pakistan were ruled to be two overs short of their target when time allowances were taken into account, an ICC press release said.
Pace bowler Imran Khan too attracted punishment after he was reprimanded at the end of the second Test. He was found guilty of breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct, when he gave Tamim Iqbal an "aggressive and continued send-off". Following the first Test, in Khulna, Shakib Al Hasan and Wahab Riaz were fined 30 percent of their match fees after they got into an altercation in the last hour of play.
