Sri Lanka have been fined 20 per cent of their match fees for maintaining a slow over-rate against India in the second ODI in Colombo on Tuesday (20).
Match Referee Ranjan Madugalle imposed the sanction after Dasun Shanaka’s side was ruled to be one over short of the target after time allowances were taken into consideration.
As per Article 16.12.2 of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League Playing Conditions, a side is penalised one point for each over short.
Consequently, Sri Lanka will lose one point from their points tally during the Super League.
Shanaka pleaded guilty to the offence and accepted the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing.
