New Delhi - England have been fined for a slow over rate
during the second one-day international against India in Cuttack, the
International Cricket Council (ICC) said on Friday.
Match referee Andy Pycroft imposed the fine after Eoin
Morgan's side was ruled to be one over short of its target when time allowances
were taken into consideration.
The hosts won the game by 15 runs after making 381-6 off 50
overs to take a 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
Under ICC regulations, players are fined 10 percent of their
match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time, with
the captain fined double that amount.
Accordingly, Morgan was fined 20 percent of his match fee,
while his players 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," the ICC
said in a news release.
The third and final one-dayer will be played in Kolkata on
