Both the India and West Indies cricket teams got fined in the first T20 match by the ICC

India and the West Indies got fined by the ICC for a slow over rate in the first T20I match at Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad. Team India was fined 5% of the match fee for exceeding the minimum over rate by 1 over, and West India was fined 10% of the match fee for exceeding the minimum over rate by 2 overs.
Richie Richardson, who is the Emirates ICC elite match umpire, ruled that the teams led by Hardik Pandya and Rovman Powell were out of the first and second overs, respectively, given the time limit and sanctioned them.
Under Article 2.22 of the Code of Conduct for ICC Players and Players Staff on Violation of Minimum Over Short Charges, if a team fails to bowl within the allotted time, the player will be fined 5% of his match fee; his 50% of the game fee is capped.
Both Pandya and Powell pleaded guilty and accepted the proposed fine, which eliminates the need for a formal hearing. Ground officials Gregory Brathwaite and Patrick Gustad, third umpire Nigel Duguid, and fourth umpire Leslie Reifer balanced the charges.
