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.

Really harsh on Taylor. He barely gets enough money as it is, never mind getting docked 60% of his match fee.
