India leads the T20 series against New Zealand by 4-0. In the last two matches, the team registered an unexpected win in the super over.
International Cricket Council has fined the Indian team forty per cent of their match fees.
This fine has been levied due to India’s slow over-rate in the fourth T20 match against New Zealand.
In accordance with Article 2.22 of the ICC code of conduct for players and player support personnel which relates to minimum over-rate offences, players are fined 20 per cent of their match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time.
Kohli pleaded guilty to the offence and accepted the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing. On-field umpires Chris Brown and Shaun Haig, and third umpire Ashley Mehrotra levelled the charges.
