Pallekele (Sri Lanka), Aug 5 (IANS) Sri Lanka has been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during its 20-run defeat to India in the fifth and final One-day International here.

ICC match referee Chris Broad imposed the fine after acting captain Angelo Mathews’ side was ruled to be one over short of its target when time allowances were taken into consideration Saturday.

Mathews was fined 20 per cent of his match fee while his players received 10-per-cent fines. If Mathews is found guilty of one more minor over-rate offence in ODIs over the next 12 months, he will receive a one-match suspension as per the provisions of the ICC Code of Conduct.
