Ireland Fined For Slow Over-Rate Against West Indies
As if losing their crucial ICC Cricket World Cup Group B game against the West Indies by 44 runs wasn't a bitter enough pill to swallow, Ireland have additionally been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate.
During the match in Chandigarh, as the West Indies were racking up 275 runs, Ireland were deemed to be one over short of their target when time allowances were taken into consideration.
Match referee Roshan Mahanama duly fined each member of the team ten percent of their match fee with captain William Porterfield's fine doubled as per the ICC Code of Conduct.
Ireland were subsequently bowled out for 231 despite Ed Joyce and Gary Wilson both scoring half-centuries.
