Pakistan got more bad news after their shock defeat to Australia in the fourth ODI in Dubai with the men in green fined for a low over rate.

Centuries from debutant Abid Ali and keeper Mohammad Rizwan weren’t enough as Pakistan lost to Australia by six runs despite needing just 66 from the last 10 overs with eight wickets in hand.

On Saturday, Pakistan were fined for maintaining a slow over-rate. Match referee Jeff Crowe deemed Pakistan to be one over short.

Stand-in captain Imad Wasim, who led the side in the absence of the injured Shoaib Malik, was fined 20 per cent of his match fee while players received 10 per cent fines.

If Pakistan commit another over-rate offence in an ODI within 12 months with Imad as captain, the left-arm spinner will face suspension.
