“Following Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to minimum over-rate offenses, players are fined 20 percent of their match fee for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time,” the ICC was quoted as saying in a statement.

India, who won all three games of the one-day international series, opted to bat first and finished with a respectable 190-6 total. In the first innings, Dinesh Karthik’s 41-run cameo and Rohit Sharma’s magnificent half-century led them to a commanding total.

West Indies responded by losing wickets often; at 86, they had already lost seven wickets. Ultimately, they scored 122-8. Shamarh Brooks led the team in scoring with 20 goals off of 15 shots. Karthik’s brilliant performance with the bat earned him Player of the Match honors.

Senior pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar got 1/11 from his two overs while Arshdeep Singh (2-24), Ravi Bishnoi (2-26), and Ashwin (2-22) also contributed wickets from four overs apiece.

“Disappointed. The players are in pain, it’s the first game of the series, and we want to recover. 18 overs later, I believe it was 150, and after that, they stopped us in our tracks. We simply need to improve our discipline. The spinners performed well, and we will now examine some of the combinations “at the post-match presentation, Pooran added.

A third match will take place at the same location on Tuesday after the second game on Monday in Basseterre, St. Kitts, and Nevis. The last two Twenty20 games will be placed at Florida’s Lauderhill.
