Sydney: The India and Sri Lanka teams have been fined for slow over rates during their tri one-day series cricket match in Adelaide on Tuesday, the International Cricket Council said Thursday.
Match referee Jeff Crowe imposed the fines after India was ruled to be one over short, and Sri Lanka two overs short of their targets when time allowances were taken into consideration, the ICC said in a statement.
Under the ICC Code of Conduct regulations, Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was fined 10 percent of his match fee with each of his players receiving five per cent fines.
Sri Lankan skipper Mahela Jayawardena was fined 20 percent of his match fee. Each of his players were also fined 10 percent.
"The over rates for all teams in this series so far have been pedestrian at times with teams failing to complete their full quota of overs in the stipulated time on several occasions," Crowe said in the statement.
"Allowances and early finishes have meant players have been fortunate to escape fines in previous matches and this is an area that all the sides need to give further attention to and improve upon.
"I will also talk to all the teams in the series before their next matches to remind them of their responsibilities," he said.
India beat Sri Lanka by two wickets at the Adelaide Oval to stay in second place in the tri series behind Australia.
