NZ vs WI 2017/18: Windies Captain Kraigg Braithwaite and Players Fined For Slow Over Rate
West Indies lost the second Test against New Zealand at the Seddon Park in Hamilton by 240 runs and have lost the two-match Test series 0-2. Their captain and players have been fined for slow over-rate second time in a row. Windies stand-in captain, Kraigg Braithwaite has been fined 40 percent of his match fees for his team failing to maintain the over rate while the players have been fined 20 percent of the match fees.
In the first Test, Windies captain Jason Holder was suspended and fined 60 percent of his match fees for his team failing to maintain the over rate and missed the Hamilton Test.
West Indies was found two overs short when time allowance was taken into considerations in the Hamilton Test, and according to the ICC’s Code of Conduct every player has been fined 20 percent of the match fees- 10 percent per over and the skipper has been fined double of this amount.
If Kraigg Braithwaite is found guilty of such an offence as a captain within next 12 months, he will face suspension just like Jason Holder who was suspended for the second Test. Holder’s offence in the first Test was his second over-rate offence in the past 12 months as he was found guilty for slow over-rate during the Jamaica Test against Pakistan in April. This second offence in less than a year led to a one-match suspension for the right arm fast bowler.
Windies have been serial offenders of such an offence. In 2015, Holder was banned for an ODI against Sri Lanka for the same offence after being found guilty Against South Africa in January the same year. And just after a month, he was fined again for the same offence in the Hobart Test.
Note- * Time allowances include treatment given to a player; player leaving the field as a result of a serious injury; all third umpire referrals and consultations; time wasting by the batting side; two minutes per wicket taken and four minutes per drinks break (one per session for Test matches)
