Dwayne Bravo suspended for slow over-rate

The West Indies captain will miss Sunday's crucial tri-series match against Sri Lanka.

West Indies have paid a heavy price for their slow over-rate against India in Port of Spain on Friday as the hosts' captain Dwayne Bravo has been suspended from the crucial tri-series match against Sri Lanka on Sunday as it was his team's second minor over-rate offence within 12 months.

West Indies had previously been fined for a slow over-rate in Cardiff against South Africa on 14 June during the ICC Champions Trophy 2013.

West Indies was ruled to be one over short of its target at the end of the match when time allowances were taken into consideration. Match Referee Jeff Crowe imposed a 20 percent fine on Bravo, while each of his players received 10 percent fines.

Massive win ignites India's campaign

Crowe said in an ICC release: "The captains were informed of their respective positions relating to over-rate breaches before the start of the series. On Friday, the umpires had kept Dwayne informed throughout the innings about the position regarding over-rates, and more so when his side fell behind."
The charge was laid by on-field umpires Nigel Llong and Peter Nero, as well as third umpire Nigel Duguid and fourth umpire Joel Wilson.
Bravo pleaded guilty to the charge; and as the subsequent penalties were accepted by both Bravo and the West Indies, there was no need for a formal hearing.
