Clarke cops fine in first ODI in charge
He lost ten per cent of his match fee in his first ODI as captain, the third time he has skippered Australia having led them in two Twenty20s. His team-mates were each docked five per cent after Australia were ruled to be one over short of their target when time allowances were taken into consideration.
The offence is contrary to Section J of the ICC Code of Conduct which relates to slow over-rates. For such offences, the decision of the ICC match referee is final and binding.
Australia won the match by one run to take a 4-0 lead in the five-match series. The final game between the two sides is also in St Kitts, on Sunday.
