England captain Alastair Cook and his players have been fined after maintaining a slow over-rate during their 133-run One-Day International defeat to India in Cardiff.

Match referee Ranjan Madugalle ruled that England were one over short of their target when time allowances were taken into consideration during the second ODI in a five-match series.

As per the ICC Code of Conduct, players are fined 10 per cent of their match fee for each over the team is short and the captain's fine is doubled.

If Cook is found guilty of one more minor over-rate offence in the next 12 months, he will receive a one-match suspension.

India posted a score of 304 for six in their innings with Suresh Raina scoring 100 in 75 balls.

England were then bowled out for 161 having been set a revised target of 295 in 47 overs.
