West Indies skipper Jason Holder on Tuesday was suspended by the ICC for the second and final Test against New Zealand at Seddon Park in Hamilton on Saturday, after his team was fined for maintaining slow over-rate. Holder, apart from missing the second Test, would also be fined 60 per cent of his match fee, while the remaining players would be fines 30 per cent of their match fee, as Windies lost the opening Test by an innings and 67 runs at Basin Reserve in Wellington on Monday. ICC Match Referee Chris Broad imposed the suspension on Holder, after Windies were found three over short following the time calculations.

The ICC sent out a media release which further stated:

In accordance with Article 2.5.1 and Appendix 2 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Players Support Personnel, which deals with 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.

As Holder had previously been found guilty of a minor over-rate offence during the Jamaica Test against Pakistan in April 2017, this offence constituted his second minor over-rate offence in a Test match within a 12-month period.

The suspension means Holder will miss the second Test against New Zealand which starts in Hamilton on Saturday, 9 December.

The charge was laid by on-field umpires Ian Gould and Rod Tucker, third umpire Bruce Oxenford, all from the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Umpires, and fourth official Wayne Knights.
