    West Indies captain Jason Holder has been handed a one-match suspension by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

    The suspension is the result of the team having a slow over-rate against Sri Lanka in the first One-Day-International (ODI) in Colombo. Holder committed a similar offence in January, when he was found guilty of a minor over-rate offence following the fifth ODI against South Africa.

    The captain pleaded guilty and was also fined 40 per cent of his match fee for the latest offence, while his teammates were fined 20 per cent of their fee. This follows Article 2.5.1 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Players Support Personnel, where players are fined 10 per cent of their match fee for every over the side fails to bowl within the specified time, while the captain receives double that amount.

    Match referee David Boon, found the West Indies to be two overs short of their target after the time allocated and allowances were considered.
