The West Indies have been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during their seven-run win over Pakistan in their one-off Twenty20 International in Saint Lucia.

Match referee Jeff Crowe ruled that the home side were one over short of their target when time allowances were taken into account.

Each member of the team was subsequently fined 10 percent of their match fee while captain Darren Sammy's fine was doubled.

It was Sammy's first experience of captaining the side on home soil and the two sides now begin a five-match ODI series.
