India fined 20% match fee for slow passing rate in first ODI v WI



The Indian cricket team have been fined 20% of their match fee for maintaining a slow pace against West Indies in the first ODI here.

Match referee Richie Richardson imposed the penalty after the team led by Shikhar Dhawan were deemed too short of goal after time allowances were taken into consideration.

“In accordance with article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to minimum rate violations, players are fined 20% of their fees game for every player on their side who does not play in the allotted time,” the ICC said in a statement on Sunday.

Dhawan pleaded guilty to the offense and accepted the proposed penalty, so there was no need for a formal hearing.

Field referees Joel Wilson and Leslie Reifer, third referee Gregory Brathwaite and fourth referee Nigel Duguid leveled the charge.

India had picked up a three-point win over West Indies in the first ODI.
