West Indies have been fined 20% per cent of their match fee for maintaining a slow over-rate against Sri Lanka in the Super 12s match at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 on 4 November.
David Boon of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees imposed the sanction after Kieron Pollard’s side was ruled to be one over short of the target after time allowances were taken into consideration.
In accordance with Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to minimum over-rate offences, players are fined 20 per cent of their match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time.
Kieron Pollard pleaded guilty to the offence and accepted the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing.
On-field umpires Aleem Dar and Langton Rusere, third umpire Paul Wilson and fourth umpire Richard Kettleborough leveled the charge.
