Update India default on over-rate in third successive match; fined 80% match fee

India have been fined for maintaining a slow over rate for a third successive limited-overs game, being docked 80 per cent of their match fee for the three-match ODI series opener in Hamilton on Wednesday (February 5).

After losing 40 and 20 per cent of the match fee respectively for the fourth and fifth T20I of the preceding series they swept 5-0, India were again found a massive four overs short of the target in the first ODI after time allowances were taken into consideration.

Match Referee Chris Broad imposed the sanction after on-field umpires Shaun Haig and Langton Rusere, third umpire Bruce Oxenford and fourth umpire Chris Brown leveled the charges. Indian skipper Virat Kohli pleaded guilty to the offence and accepted the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing.
