The triumphant Indian cricket team has been fined for it's slow over rate in the World Cup final against Sri Lanka [ Images ], the International Cricket Council [ Images ] (ICC [ Images ]) said on Sunday.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni's [ Images ] men were one over short of the target at the end of Saturday's final when time allowances were taken into consideration, the ICC said in a statement.
"As such, Dhoni was fined 20 percent of his match fee while his players received 10 percent fines," the statement read.
The penalty was accepted by India [ Images ] without contest so there was no need for a hearing.
The fine would hardly hit the Indians' pockets since the cricket board here awarded 10 million rupees ($353,700) to every member of the squad that won the country's second 50-over World Cup at the Wankhede Stadium.
On top of that, Dhoni would get 20 million rupees from the Delhi [ Images ] government, while four Delhi players -- Gautam Gambhir [ Images ], Virender Sehwag [ Images ], Ashish Nehra [ Images ], and Virat Kohli [ Images ] -- will get 10 million each.
