London:

England has been fined for a slow over-rate in the 115-run victory over Australia in the second Ashes Test.

The International Cricket Council on Wednesday fined captain Andrew Strauss 20 per cent of his match fee while the rest of the team lost 10 per cent.

Match referee Jeff Crowe said the hosts were two overs short of their target at the end of the match.

According to ICC rules, players are fined five per cent of their match fees and the captain double that amount for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time.

England leads the Ashes series 1-0 with three Tests remaining.
