Team India was on Sunday fined 20 per cent of its match fee for slow over-rate in the fifth T20 International against New Zealand in Mount Maunganui.
“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,” ICC said in a media release.
Stand-in captain Rohit Sharma pleaded guilty to the offence and accepted the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing.
On-field umpires Chris Brown and Shaun Haig and third umpire Ashley Mehrotra levelled the charge.
India won the match by seven runs on Sunday to complete a rare 5-0 series whitewash over New Zealand in the shortest format of the game.
