New Delhi:

International Cricket Council (ICC) had decided in its executive meeting that a captain should be penalised heavily for slow over-rate. MS Dhoni and his team became the first victim of the recommendation as India were fined for being three-overs behind at the end of the second Test against the West Indies.

Chris Broad, the ICC match referee, found India guilty of maintaining a slow rate of bowling for most parts of Saturday's play and imposed the fine as per the rules and regulations of the code of conduct.

Dhoni was fined 60 per-cent of his match fees while each member of the side were imposed with a 30 per-cent penalty. The offence is contrary to Article 2.5.1 of the code which relates to minor over-rate offences.

In a statement released by the ICC, the team is believed to have accepted the penalty without contesting it and therefore, no hearing was conducted.
