India fined for maintaining slow over-rate for third consecutive time

India have been fined 80 percent of their match fee for maintaining slow over-rate in the first ODI against New Zealand at Hamilton. This is their third successive over-rate offence.

The first offence came in the fourth T20I, where they were fined 40 percent of the match fee. The second violation came in the fifth and final T20I as they were docked 20 percent of the fee.

According to the match referee, Chris Broad, India were four overs short of the target in the first ODI. Previously, in more than five years, India have gone without committing an over-rate offence.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli accepted the charges which meant there was no need for a formal hearing. Earlier, India lost the first ODI by four wickets. The second ODI of the three-match series will be played on February 8.
