Team India face a big setback before the second ODI against Australia on Sunday. The ICC has now imposed a fine on the Indian team, which had lost 66 against the hosts. The Indian team has been fined for a slow over-rate. ICC has given this information in its statement.
In the first match played at the Sydney Cricket Ground, players of the Indian team, captained by Virat Kohli, will have to pay a fine of 20 percent of their match fees for slow over-rate. International Cricket Council match referee David Boon imposed the penalty for throwing an over short of the target during the match.
