Australia and South Africa have both been fined for maintaining slow over-rates during the first ODI in Perth.

South Africa captain AB de Villiers and Australia stand-in skipper George Bailey were both fined 40 per cent of their match fee, while the rest of the players were fined 20 per cent each.

Bailey was fined 40 per cent instead of regular captain Michael Clarke since he led Australia for a majority of the match after Clarke re-injured his hamstring.

If Bailey or de Villiers are found guilty of maintaining a slow over-rate at any point over the next 12 months, they will be banned for one match.
