West Indies fell two overs short after time allowances were taken into consideration.

West Indies has been fined for a minimum over-rate breach of the ICC Code of Conduct during the fifth and final One-Day International (ODI) against South Africa in Centurion on Wednesday.

Chris Broad of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees imposed the fines after the side, led by Jason Holder, was ruled to be two overs short of its target when time allowances were taken into consideration.

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, Holder was fined 40 per cent of his match fee, while his players received 20 per cent fines.
