News Patiala:- India was fined 5% of their match fee by the International Cricket Council (ICC) for maintaining a slow over-rate in their T20 loss to West Indies on Thursday.
The West Indies won the match by four runs, and India were found to be one over short of their target after time allowances were taken into consideration.
The ICC’s Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel states that players are fined five percent of their match fee for every over their team fails to bowl in the allotted time, subject to a cap of 50 percent of the match fee.
India captain Hardik Pandya accepted the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing.
The West Indies were also fined 10% of their match fee for maintaining a slow over-rate.
The two teams will play the second T20 of the five-match series on Saturday.
