Team India fined for slow over-rate
The Indian cricket team on Friday had salt rubbed into their World Cup wounds, with the ICC fining them for slow over-rate in the decisive group match against Sri Lanka.
ICC match referee Jeff Crowe imposed the fines after Rahul Dravid's side was judged to be one over short of its target at the scheduled finish of Sri Lanka innings when time allowances were taken into consideration, the ICC said in a statement.
In accordance with the ICC Code of Conduct regulations governing over-rate penalties, the captain was fined 10 per cent of his match fee and rest of the team five per cent of their match fees.
India lost the match at Port of Spain, Trinidad, on March 23 by 69 runs and were eliminated from the tournament.
