The South African players, already stung by a surprise one-wicket defeat against the Black Caps, will lose their entire match fee after it was found South Africa were six overs short of their target even after time allowances were taken into account. Match referee David Boon imposed the ban after De Villiers pleaded guilty to the offence.
