GEORGETOWN, Guyana (CMC) – West Indies have been fined for a slow over rate during their 113-run loss to Sri Lanka in their Cricket World Cup, Super Eight match Sunday.
The regional side were two overs short of the target at the scheduled finish of the Sri Lanka innings, match referee Jeff Crowe said.
In accordance with the ICC Code of Conduct regulations governing over-rate penalties for players, captain Brian Lara has been fined 20 per cent of his match fee, while the other players have received 10 per cent fines.
Sri Lanka condemned West Indies to their third straight loss in the Super Eight by raising 303 for five off 50 overs and then dismissing the hosts for 190 in 44.3 overs.
