Bangladesh have been fined 20 per cent of their match fees for maintaining a slow over-rate against the West Indies in the second T20 match in Dominica, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said on Wednesday.
The decision was taken by ICC Elite Panel of Match referee Richie Richardson after Bangladesh decided to stay one over short of the target after considering the time allowance during Sunday’s game.
“Under Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Staff, which deals with minimum over-rate offenses, players are fined 20 per cent of their match fee for not bowling within the time allotted by their team for each over,” the ICC said in a statement.

Bangladesh captain Mahmudullah pleaded guilty and accepted the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing. On-field umpires Leslie Reifer Jr. and Nigel Dugueid, third umpire Gregory Brathwaite and fourth umpire Patrick Gustard charged.
Bangladesh are trailing 0-1 in the three-match T20I series. The first T20I was washed out on Saturday and the third and final T20I will be played on July 7 at Providence Stadium, Guyana.
