Dubai, Jul 3 : Team India has been fined for a slow over-rate during the second Test against the West Indies at Barbados.


Chris Broad of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees imposed the fines after Mahendra Singh Dhoni's side was ruled to be three overs short of its target at the end of the match when time allowances were taken into consideration, an ICC press release said.

In accordance with ICC Code of Conduct regulations governing minor over-rate offences, players are fined 10 per cent of their match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time, with the captain fined double that amount.

As such, Dhoni was fined 60 per cent of his match fee while his players received 30-per-cent fines.

The offence is contrary to Article 2.5.1 of the code which relates to minor over-rate offences. The penalty was accepted by India without contest so there was no need for a hearing.
