If Sri Lanka commits a second minor over-rate offence during the event with Ranaweera as captain, then she will be suspended for one match

Sri Lanka has been found guilty of maintaining a slow over rate during its ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 match against India in Derby on Wednesday.

Richie Richardson of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees imposed the sanction after Inoka Ranaweera’s side was ruled to be one over short of its target when time allowances were taken into consideration.

As per Appendix 3 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel there is no financial penalty against the Sri Lanka players, however, if Sri Lanka commits a second minor over-rate offence during the event with Ranaweera as captain, then she will be suspended for one match.

The charge had been laid by on-field umpires Langton Rusere and Chris Brown, third umpire Gregory Brathwaite and reserve umpire Shaun George.
