West Indies have been fined for a slow over-rate during their 14-run victory over India at the Kensington Oval on Sunday. Chris Gayle was docked 40% of his match fees, and the rest of the team 20% of theirs, after match referee Jeff Crowe ruled that the home side were two overs behind schedule.
The ICC Code of Conduct regulations stipulates that players will be 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.
Gayle will be suspended for one match if, when he is captain, West Indies are tardy with their over-rate in Twenty20s twice more within a year. Of more pressing concern for Gayle & Co will be the Tuesday's final round of matches, where West Indies are likely to need a win over the tournament's most impressive side, Australia, to qualify for the semi-finals.
