In the fifth match of the series, India had given England a big target of 225 runs while batting first, in response to which England were able to score only 188 runs in 20 overs. However, even after the series win, the ICC has imposed a penalty for slow over rate on the Indian team.
India fined 40 percent of match fees
India has been fined 40 percent of the match fee by the ICC for slow over rate. The penalty was imposed by ICC’s Elite Panel Match Referee Javagal Srinath for throwing the Virat Kohli-led Indian team two overs slower than the scheduled time. The ICC said in a statement, “Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for players and support staff pertains to minimum over-speed violations, in which players are fined 20 percent of the match fee for each slow over-throw.”
Please tell that Virat Kohli has accepted the proposed penalty, so there is no need for an official hearing. The charges were framed by on-field umpires Anil Chaudhary and Nitin Menon and third umpire KN Anant Padmanabhan.
