West Indies fined for slow over-rate

Nottingham:

West Indies' 15-run loss to Sri Lanka in their final group match of the World Twenty20 at Trent Bridge on Wednesday was compounded when they were fined for a slow over-rate.

Match referee Chris Broad, the ex-England batsman, imposed the fines after Denesh Ramdin's side was ruled to be two overs short of its target at the end of the Sri Lanka innings when time allowances were taken into consideration.

In accordance with International Cricket Council rules, players are fined five 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 such, wicket-keeper Ramdin - leading the side in place of the injured Chris Gayle - was fined 20 percent of his match fee while his players received 10 percent fines.

Both Sri Lanka and the West Indies had already qualified for the second phase Super Eights before Wednesday's match after they'd each beaten Australia.
