Dhoni and Indian team fined for slow over-rateHambantota: Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was fined 20 per cent of his match fee while his teammates were docked 10 per cent of their earnings for maintaining a slow over-rate during the first ODI against Sri Lanka here.

"India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and the India team have been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during its 21-run victory against Sri Lanka in the first One Day International held in Hambantota on Saturday," the ICC said in a statement.


The India side was ruled to be an over short of its target when time allowances were taken into consideration. Match referee Chris Broad imposed a 20 per cent fine on Dhoni while each of his players received 10-per-cent-fines.


"The offence is contrary to Article 2.5.1 of the code which relates to minor over-rate offences. The finding and penalty were imposed following a full disciplinary hearing," the statement said.

India won the first match by 21 runs last night.
