Broad fined for second time in World T20 after England's slow over-rate against Sri Lanka
England's limited-overs captain Stuart Broad has reportedly been fined for the second time at the World Twenty20 tournament following his team's slow over-rate in Thursday's six-wicket victory over Sri Lanka in Chittagong.
Players are fined 10 percent of their match fees for every over their side fail to bowl in the allotted time, with the captain fined double that amount and Broad was therefore fined 40 percent of his match fee while his players received 20 percent fines.
According to Sport24, the ICC said in a statement that match referee David Boon imposed the fines after England was ruled to be two overs short of its target when time allowances were taken into consideration.
The statement further said that if Broad is found guilty of one more minor over-rate offence in T20 internationals over the next 12 months, he would receive a one-match suspension.
The all-rounder was fined 15 percent of his match fee on Sunday for criticising the officials after England's rain-affected defeat by New Zealand, the report added.
