Jason Holder suspended for final Test due to slow over-rate

West Indies skipper Jason Holder has been suspended for the third and final Test against England due to his team's slow over-rate in Antigua Test last week, the ICC said in a media release on Monday.

The ICC said in a statement that the Windies were two overs short of their target after time allowances were taken into consideration.

Holder had previously been found guilty of a minor over-rate offence during the Barbados Test against Sri Lanka last June.

"Jeff Crowe (Match referee) imposed the suspension on Holder after the Windies were ruled to be two overs short of their target after time allowances were taken into consideration," the ICC said.

The 27-year-old all-rounder, who has taken seven wickets and scored 229 runs in the series so far, was also fined 40 percent of his match fee, while all the other Windies players were fined 20 percent each.

The final Test starts in St Lucia on Saturday, with the Caribbean side looking for a memorable series whitewash.
