Team India was on Saturday fined 40 per cent of its match fee for slow over-rate in the fourth T20 International against New Zealand at the Westpack Stadium in Wellington.
Match referee imposed the sanctions after Virat Kohli’s side was said to be two overs 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,” ICC said in a media release.
Skipper Kohli 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 had levelled levelled the charges.
India lead the five match T20I series 4-0 and will play the final match on February 2.
