South Africa’s wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock is likely to not be panalised or fined after the run out incident involving Pakistan’s opener Fakhar Zaman, during the second One-Day International (ODI) between the sides at the Wanderers Stadium on Sunday, since a written complaint is yet to be submitted regarding the matter.

A source within the team management confirmed that while Team Manager Mansoor Rana spoke to match referee Andy Pycroft, a written complaint was not submitted.

According to the rules, questionable actions need to be brought forward through a written complaint to the match referee. The match referee holds the authority to fine Quinton de Kock for his actions if a written complaint is submitted.

Since the written complaint has not been submitted it is unlikely that the South African wicketkeeper-batsman is in danger of being fined. The rules dictate that a team has 24 hours to lodge a written complaint after a match has finished.
