Windies fined for slow over rate

West Indies captain Darren Sammy has been fined 80 per cent of his match fee for his team's slow over rate during their five-wicket defeat by England in the first test at Lord's.


West Indies were ruled four overs short of their target, triggering a 40 per cent fine for all the players in the team apart from the captain who must pay double under ICC rules.

If Sammy is found guilty of another over-rate offence in the next year, he will receive a one-match suspension.
