India have been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during the World Cup final in Mumbai against Sri Lanka on Saturday. Sri Lanka opted to bat and match referee Jeff Crowe ruled that India were one over short when time allowances were taken into consideration. In accordance with ICC's Code of Conduct regulations governing minor over-rate offences, players are fined 10% of their match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time, with the captain fined double that amount.

As a result MS Dhoni was fined 20% of his match fee while the rest of the team were fined 10% each. India played three fast bowlers in the match and the innings break had to be reduced to twenty minutes as a result of India's over-rate. India won the match by six wickets.
