ICC fines India and West Indies for slow over rates in 1st T20I

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has fined both India and West Indies for maintaining slow over rates during the 1st T20I match held at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy Stadium in Tarouba on 3rd August.

India was found to be one over short during their bowling innings, resulting in a five per cent reduction in match fees. On the other hand, West Indies fell two overs short, leading to a ten per cent match fee deduction for their players.


Both teams admitted to the offence, and the fines were imposed in accordance with Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct. Despite the slow over rates, West Indies emerged victorious, taking a 1-0 lead in the five-match T20I series.
