West Indies docked WTC points

Meanwhile, West Indies slipped to eighth behind Bangladesh as two points were docked for slow over-rate during their drawn first Test against England in Antigua. The Kraigg Brathwaite-led side were found to have been two overs short after reasonable adjustments and time allowances had been taken into consideration, the ICC said.

As a result, West Indies were fined 40 per cent of their match fee and were also penalised two points in the ICC World Test Championship standings. They are one of three teams to have been docked points due to penalty overs. India have been docked three points and ninth-placed England docked 10 across 10 matches to date.

As per the WTC playing conditions, a side will be penalised one WTC point and fined 20 percent of their match fees for every over they have failed to bowl in the allotted time.
