IND vs WI 2022: India fined for maintaining slow over rate in first ODI against West Indies

The Indian team have been slapped a 20 per cent fine for maintaining a slow over rate during the first ODI against the West Indies in Port of Spain on July 22. The visitors fell one over short of the required target after time allowances.

Richie Richardson of the ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees imposed the sanction while on-field umpires Joel Wilson and Leslie Reiffer alongside TV umpire Gregory Brathwaite leveled the charge. The tourists' stand-in captain Shikhar Dhawan accepted the offense and avoided a hearing.

Dhawan and co. registered a three-run victory over a spirited West Indies side to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. Batting first, the visitors were all out for 308, thanks to an impressive bowling performance from the Windies.

The Indian team, at one point, looked on track to reach a total of over 350, but the hosts bowled well in the final 15 overs to pull them back. They conceded only 83 runs and took five wickets.

The Caribbean side started the run-chase strongly, with Kyle Mayers and Shamarh Brooks adding 117 runs after Shai Hope perished for seven runs. The Men in Blue bounced back with quick wickets of Mayers and Brooks. Brandon King, batting at number four, scored 54 but couldn't keep going.

The likes of Akeal Hosein and Romario Shepherd delivered some lusty blows, but failed to get their team over the line.
