India Fined For Slow Over-Rate In Dambulla Final
India have been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during their One-Day International tri-series final to Sri Lanka in Dambulla.
As Sri Lanka racked up 299 for eight batting first, India were adjudged to have been two overs short of their target, with match referee Alan Hurst fining Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni 40 percent of his match fee and the rest of his team 20 percent.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) Code of Conduct dictates that players are fined ten percent of their match fee for each over they are short with the captain's fines automatically being doubled.
India went on to lose the match by 74 runs as they were bowled out for 225 in reply.
