So England have been fined for their slow over rate during the test match according to Sky Sports News, but I've not heard anything about the Sri Lankans who were just as bad.

Can't fine one and not the other surely?

seems a bit silly to fine England and not SL, England were marginally worse on their worst day (day 3) but better on their better ones (second half of day 2, day 5). Overall both teams were a disgrace, but England can afford a fine, whereas maybe SL can't Wink

I write that in jest, but if the ICC were serious about over rates they would be dealing in bans, not fines, as they do in T20 and ODIs (in which, perversely, over rates at least don't impact on the amount of cricket the public gets to see).

Of the 17 overs (both sides) that went unbowled on the first four days, only one of those missing overs is actually being punished. So when they say that you need to bowl 90 overs a day, they really mean 86 (ish).

Over rates for both teams were terrible in this Test, but its nothing new in almost every Test Match the Over Rates are slow.

As well as the players being fined, Cook has been warned. Another indiscretion in the next 12 months and he's banned for a Test.

The ICC as usual, acting in their Joker version. Muppets!!. Who care about a fine in this day and age? Obnoxious!.

England's OR is not going to improve much with a pert-time spinner in the side either. Cook could find himself on the sidelines soon enough.
