News Americas, COLOMBO, Sri Lanka, Weds. Nov. 4, 2015: Just when you thought the West Indies cricket team troubles couldn’t get any worst it has.
New captain Jason Holder has been fined for a slow over-rate during the first One-Day International (ODI) against Sri Lanka in Colombo. Holder has also been fined 40 per cent of his match fee, while the other Windies players received 20 per cent fines.
It is Holder’s second slow-over-rate offence within the last 12 months. He has been punished with a one-match suspension which applies to the next match
David Boon of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees imposed the fine and suspension after Holder’s side was ruled to be two overs short of its target when time allowances were taken into consideration.
The fine comes as the Windies continue a losing streak in the match-up against Sri Lanka.
