India were four overs short during the nervy-loss in the first ODI in Mirpur on Sunday against Bangladesh. One of International Cricket Council (ICC)’s Panel of Match Referees, Ranjan Madugalle imposed the sanction on Rohit Sharma-led side.
“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 fee for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time,” read the press release on ICC’s website.
