Summary

  • Cape Town, Jan 6 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News, app – 6th Jan, 2019 ) :The South African team management on Sunday called for flexibility in dealing with over-rate regulations following a one-match ban imposed on captain Faf du Plessis.
  • Du Plessis was banned for one Test after being found guilty, for the second time in a 12-month period, of captaining a team which maintained a slow over-rate.
  • South Africa opted for an all-pace attack in the second Test at Newlands and were found by match referee David Boon to be one over short of the required rate of 15 overs an hour after time allowances were taken into account.
  • Du Plessis had scarcely finished extolling the virtues of Test cricket — and in particular the excitement generated by fast bowlers — before he found himself banned because of the time it takes those bowlers to deliver their overs.
  • Du Plessis was previously found guilty of what the International Cricket Council, in announcing the ban, described as a “minor over-rate offence” after the second Test against India in Centurion in January last year.
