Sri Lanka fined for slow over-rate in fifth ODI
ICC match referee Chris Broad imposed the fine after acting captain Angelo Mathews' side was ruled to be one over short of its target when time allowances were taken into consideration Saturday.
Mathews was fined 20 per cent of his match fee while his players received 10-per-cent fines. If Mathews is found guilty of one more minor over-rate offence in ODIs over the next 12 months, he will receive a one-match suspension as per the provisions of the ICC Code of Conduct.

More It is a day of celebration for all cricket fans across the world as master blaster Sachin Tendulkar was born on this day in 1973. It has been 6 long months since the little master's retirement. There is hardly anything left which this veteran hadn't achieved in his illustrious career. From being the highest run scorer in both forms of cricket, along with making 100 centuries or even being the first batsman who was given out by a third umpire, the list is endless. Almost every record has been in his kitty. Sachin is the role model for many and this man made it a point to exercise his franchise even on this special day.
