Bangladesh fined for maintaining slow over-rate in first ODI

Bangladesh took over four hours to complete their 50 overs in the first one-day international against Sri Lanka and as a result, have been fined for slow over-rate.

The tourists were found guilty of being two overs short of their target after time allowances were put into consideration.

In accordance with Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, match referee Chris Broad imposed the fine on Bangladesh.

Stand-in skipper Tamim Iqbal was fined 40 per cent of his match fees whereas the other players received 20 per cent fines.

Tamim's debut as Bangladesh's 14th captain in ODI cricket did not fare well as his team faced a crushing 91-run defeat.

Veteran Sri Lankan pacer Lasith Malinga signed off his ODI career in style picking up three wickets in his side's emphatic victory.

The next game between the two teams is scheduled to take place on Sunday in Colombo.
