The International Cricket Council (ICC) has heavily fined the West Indies for maintaining an extremely slow over-rate during the first Test against England at Lord's.

After they were found to be some four overs short of their target, captain Darren Sammy was hit with a fine of 80 percent of his match fee while his players were fined 40 percent.

Players are fined 10 percent for each over their side is short and the captain's fine is automatically doubled.

Should the West Indies be found guilty of another such offence with Sammy at the helm in the next 12 months, he will face a one-match ban.

The tourists eventually lost the match by five wickets.
