Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza has been fined 40% of his match fees and has also been suspended for one ODI, while his players have been fined with 20% of their match fees for maintaining a slow-overrate during their battle against India in the quarterfinals of the Cricket World Cup 2015 at the Melbourne cricket ground on Thursday.

The suspension on Mashrafe was imposed by match referee Roshan Mahanama, as at the end of the match Bangladesh was ruled to be two overs short of its target even when time allowances were taken into consideration.

This is the second time Mashrafe has been found guilty in the Cricket World Cup 2015 for minor over-rate offense for the purpose of the ICC Code of Conduct. First time it happened against England on March 9. As Mashrafe pleaded guilty to the offense and also accepted the proposed sanction there was no need for a formal hearing.

As after losing the match against India, Bangladesh is out of this Cricket World Cup and have no more matches left in the Cricket World Cup 2015, So Mortaza will miss his next ODI which is against Pakistan which is scheduled in April/May.
