Dhoni banned for one match
Monday 20 February 2012
India's captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, has been banned for one match because of a slow over rate in his team's 110-run one-day defeat to Australia in Brisbane yesterday.
The International Cricket Council match referee, Andy Pycroft, ruled India were two overs short of their target when time allowances were taken into consideration. He banned Dhoni for a match and fined him 40 per cent of his match fee. Dhoni was also banned for the last Test against Australia at Adelaide last month, for the same reason.
