The West Indies team have incurred a fine for a slow over rate in the during the second One-Day International (ODI) against India in Delhi on Saturday. Due to a Minimum Over Rate breach of the ICC Code of Conduct this fine was imposed on the West Indies.

Jeff Crowe of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees imposed the fines after the West Indies, captained by Dwayne Bravo, ruled that his side was a couple of short of its target when time allowances were taken into account.

According to the regulations of the of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel governing minor over-rate misdemeanors, players incur a 10 percent deduction of their match fee if their t side fails to complete the quota of overs in the allotted time, with the captain fined double that amount.

Captain Bravo was fined 40 per cent of his match fee, while his players were slapped with  20 per cent fines. If Bravo is found to be guilty of more such offences  in ODIs in the next 12 months a one-match suspension will be slapped on him.
