New Delhi: In what is now becoming part of a regular feature, skipper MS Dhoni and his team was fined for a slow over-rate during India's ODI match against Sri Lanka at Hambantota on Saturday.
While the match was secured by a margin of 21 runs after the visitors posted 314 on the board, India failed to complete the required number of overs in the allotted time in the day-night clash. India used the services of spinners R Ashwin and Pragyan Ojha and even had Virender Sehwag roll his arms over but failed to meet the set closing time. (Read match report here)
The penalty was imposed after a full disciplinary hearing and the decision was made and conveyed by match referee Chris Broad.
