Indians fined after T20 win over England

·1-min read

India have been fined 20 per cent of their match fee for a slow over-rate against England in the second women's T20I in Hove.

Phil Whitticase of the Emirates ICC International Panel of Match Referees imposed the sanction after Harmanpreet Kaur's side was ruled to be one over short of the target after time allowances were taken into consideration.

Under ICC rules, players are fined 20 per cent of their match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time.

Kaur pleaded guilty to the offence and accepted the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing.

On-field umpires Ian Blackwell and Paul Baldwin, third umpire Sue Redfern and fourth umpire Tim Robinson levelled the charge.

India won the second T20 by eight runs to level their three-match series, after losing the first match under the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern system.

The final match takes place on Wednesday in Chelmsford.
