George Bailey has been suspended for one game and David Warner fined 50 per cent of his match fee following Australia's four-wicket win over India in the tri-series One-Day International in Melbourne.

Bailey's suspension is due to Australia's over-rate being too slow and as this was his second offence in a 12-month period, he serves a one-game suspension.

Bailey was also fined 20 per cent of his match fee and his players 10 per cent after they were deemed to be one over short of their target.

He will miss Australia's next game which is against England on Friday (23rd January) in Hobart.

Warner, meanwhile, was fined 50 per cent of his match fee for an incident during the game when he remonstrated with Rohit Sharma.

He aggressively confronted the batsman after Sharma had taken a run from an overthrow and Warner had to be moved away from the batsmen by the on-field umpires.

He pleaded guilty to a breach of Article 2.1.8 of the ICC Code of Conduct which relates to conduct that is either contrary to the spirit of the game or brings the game into disrepute.

The charges were laid by on-field umpires Kumar Dharmasena and John Ward, third umpire Mick Martell and fourth official Simon Fry.
