Dubai: West Indies stand-in skipper Kraigg Brathwaite was on Tuesday fined 40 percent of his match fee for over rate offences during the second Test against New Zealand at the Seddon Park in Hamilton. Brathwaite's side was ruled to be two overs short of its target when time allowances were taken into consideration by the International Cricket Council (ICC) match referee Chris Broad.

"Brathwaite has been fined 40 percent of his match fee, while his players have received 20 per cent fines. If the Windies commit another minor over-rate breach in a Test within 12 months of this offence with Brathwaite as captain, it will be deemed a second offence by Brathwaite and he will face a suspension," the ICC said in a statement.

In accordance with Article 2.5.1 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to minor over-rate offences, players are fined 10 per cent of their match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time, with the captain fined double that amount.

The Caribbean side, which went down by 240 runs to lose the series 0-2, had already lost their regular skipper Jason Holder due to over-rate offences. Holder was banned for the Hamilton Test after he was found guilty of the same offence during the first Test in Wellington.
