The International Cricket Council (ICC) has imposed West Indies captain Darren Sammy a fine of 80 percent of his match fee for slow over rate during their five-wicket defeat by England in the first Test at Lord`s, said on Monday.

All the players in the team were fined 40 percent as West Indies were ruled four overs short of their target. However, ICC rules state that the captain must pay the double. Another over-rate offence in the next year means one-match suspension for Darren Sammy.
