The Windies have been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during the second Test against New Zealand, which ended in Hamilton on Tuesday.
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.
As such, Brathwaite has been fined 40 per cent 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.
Brathwaite pleaded guilty to the offence and accepted the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing.
The charge was levelled by on-field umpires Bruce Oxenford and Rod Tucker, third umpire Ian Gould, all from the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Umpires, and fourth umpire Chris Brown.
