WI fined for slow over rate
DUBAI – Captain Dwayne Bravo will forfeit 40 per cent of his match fee after West Indies were fined for a slow over rate during the second One-Day International against India in New Delhi yesterday.
International Cricket Council match referee Jeff Crowe imposed the fines after the Caribbean side were ruled to be two overs short of their target when time allowances were taken into consideration.
The other Windies players, meanwhile, will part with 20 per cent of their match fee for the breach.
According to ICC 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.
If Bravo is found guilty of another minor over-rate offence in ODIs over the next 12 months, he will receive a one-match suspension.
West Indies lost the game at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium by 48 runs, after collapsing to 215 all out in pursuit of 264 for victory.
The series has been reduced to four matches with the cancellation of next Tuesday’s game due to an expected cyclone. (CMC/NB)
