England fined for slow over-rate

England captain Eoin Morgan and his side will hand 20 and 10 percent of their match-fees respectively to the ICC as they were one over short during the second ODI against India at Cuttack.

"In accordance with Article 2.5.1 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to minor over-rate offences, players are fined 10 per cent of their match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time, with the captain fined double that amount," the ICC statement read. "As such, Morgan has been fined 20 per cent of his match fee, while his players have received 10 per cent fines. Morgan pleaded guilty to the offence and accepted the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing."

After chasing down 351 in the first ODI, scintillating knocks by Yuvraj Singh (150) and Mahindra Singh Dhoni (134) saw India post a gigantic 381. England fell 15 runs short to hand India three-match series 2-0.

The two sides head to Kolkata for the dead-rubber on Sunday before the three T20 series.
