India Fined 20 Percent for Slow Over-Rate

The Men in Blue received another fine sue to their slow over-rate in the last T20I match against New Zealand last Sunday, February 2. 

India was found an over short of the target after considering the time allowances. As a result, the team was deducted 20 per cent of their match fee. 

This is the second instance that the India cricket team was caught short of the target, now having a total of 60 per cent deduction of their match fee. 

Previously in the fourth T20I match against New Zealand in Wellington, Virat Kohli admitted guilty for maintaining a slow over-rate and was deducted 40 per cent. The team failed to complete their overs in time for the match. 

Umpires in the field, Chris Brown and Shaun Haig, along with the third umpire, Ashley Mehrotra levelled the charges to the team. The Indian captain accepted the sanction which set aside a formal hearing. 

Based on Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, minimum over-rate offences include players to be fined 20 per cent of their match fees. It is sanctioned for every over the team fails to bowl in the allowed time. 

India (-208.33) is set to start their ODI series against New Zealand (+174) tomorrow at Seddon Park in Hamilton, New Zealand.
