The ICC has sanctioned the Sri Lankan team after it was found guilty of maintaining a slow overload in the second ODI against India on Tuesday in Colombo. As Sri Lanka was one short after all considerations, they also lost one point in the ICC ODI Super League points tally.
Sri Lanka has been losing in recent times, expanding from games to losing money. The hosts were found guilty of the slow overload in the second ODI against India, and as a result they lose 20% of their match costs. Match referee Ranjan Madugalle imposed the sanction after the Lankans fell by one over, even after all time allowances were taken into account.
In a release, the ICC stated that the imposition was sanctioned: “In accordance with Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which pertains to minimum exceedances, players will be fined 20 percent of their match fees for each over their side not bowling in the allotted time.”
Not only were Sri Lanka fined, but according to the ‘Article 16.12.2 of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League’ they also lost one point in the ICC ODI Super League point count. Sri Lankan skipper Dasun Shanaka has pleaded guilty to the violation and accepted the sanction, eliminating the need for a formal hearing.
The third ODI between India and Sri Lanka will take place on July 23 in Colombo. India has already won the three-game series 2-0. After the ODI series, the T20Is will start from July 25 and finish on July 29. This will be India’s last T20I appearance before this year’s T20 World Cup, which will take place in the UAE and Oman.
