The Perth Scorchers BBL team has been penalised for a slow over rate in their KFC Big Bash League semi-final against Hobart Hurricanes at Optus Stadium on 1 February 2018.

 

The Scorchers were found to be 6 minutes behind the scheduled time to complete their 20 overs, after allowances, equating to one over short.

 

In accordance with the BBL Playing Conditions, each member of the playing XI was offered a $1,000 fine which would be reduced to $500 per player if accepted without appeal.
