The Hong Kong team was fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during its 155-run defeat to Pakistan in the Asia Cup in Karachi on Tuesday.
Alan Hurst of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees imposed the fine after Tabarak Dar's side was ruled to be one over short of its target when time allowances were taken into consideration.
In accordance with the ICC Code of Conduct regulations governing over-rate penalties, players are fined five per cent of their match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time, with the captain fined double that amount.
As such, Dar was fined 10 per cent of his match fee while each of his players received five per cent fines.
The offence is contrary to Section J of the ICC Code of Conduct which relates to slow over-rates.
For such offences, the decision of the ICC match referee is final and binding. The full ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Officials can be found at
