England [Images] skipper Paul Collingwood [Images] has been fined 50 per cent of his match fee after for his team's slow over-rate against India in the second one-day international in Bristol on Friday.

Besides Collingwood, his teammates are each fined five per cent of their match fee for every over they failed to bowl in the time allowed and will thus have to pay 15 per cent of their earnings.

Match referee Roshan Mahanama imposed the fines after Collingwood's side was ruled to be three overs short of its target at the end of the Indian innings.

As the shortfall was more than two overs, Collingwood, as captain, was charged with a Level two Code of Conduct breach, clause 2.11.

"Collingwood was fined 50 per cent of his match fee for the breach -- the minimum amount allowable for a Level two offence -- and as he was found guilty, that punishment took precedence over any fine that was imposed on him as part of the England team," an ICC [Images] statement said.
