India have been punished for a slow over-rate during their miserable fifth-Test loss to England.
The International Cricket Council have fined India for a slow over-rate during the fifth and final Test at The Oval in London, where England secured a three-one series triumph.
The tourists were deemed to be three overs behind the target after time allowances were taken into consideration. Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was sanctioned 60 percent – and the rest of the team 30.
India accepted the ruling without appealing. Dhoni will be suspended for one match if the Indians commit another over-rate offence before August 2015.
The English and Indians will meet for five ODIs – in Bristol, Cardiff, Nottingham, Birmingham and Leeds – between 25 August and 5 September. A one-off Twenty20 International at Edgbaston will follow.

“He’s got an unbelievable record which I’d love to have.”
Praise from Caesar for Jofra Archer.
Let’s have less Rain Stopped Play and more Play Continued Through Rain.
What is the actual plan here, lads?
“No more runs!” roars the captain with a dismissive wave of the hand.
This week’s Numberwang will make you feel old. Unless you’re 16.
