West Indies have been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during their 15-run loss to Sri Lanka in the Group C match at Trent Bridge. Match referee Chris Broad imposed the fines after Denesh Ramdin's side was ruled to be two overs short of its target at the end of the Sri Lankan innings when time allowances were taken into consideration.

In accordance with the ICC Code of Conduct regulations governing over-rate penalties, players are fined 5% of their match fees for every over the side fails to bowl in the allotted time, with the captain fined double that amount. As such, Ramdin was fined 20% of his match fee while the others received 10% fines. The offence is contrary to Section J of the Code and for such offences, the decision of the match referee is final and binding.
