Australia had salt rubbed into the wound of their 48-run Champions Trophy defeat by arch-rivals England at Edgbaston on Saturday when they were fined for a slow over-rate.

Match referee Javagal Srinath, the former India bowler, imposed the fines after title-holders Australia were found to be one over short of their target when time allowances were taken into consideration. 

In accordance with the International Cricket Council’s code of conduct, Australia’s players were fined 10 percent of their match fee with George Bailey, captain in the absence of the injured Michael Clarke, fined 20 percent in his role as skipper.
