In Mahela Jayawardene's absence, Angelo Mathews captain Sri Lanka in the dead rubber against India. © AFPSri Lanka were fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during their 20-run defeat against India in the fifth ODI at Pallekele on Saturday.

Match referee Chris Broad imposed the fines after the home team, captained by Angelo Mathews, was ruled to be one over short of their target after time allowances were taken into consideration.

Players are fined 10-percent of their match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time, with the captain fined double that amount.

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 the ICC Code of Conduct.

The offence is contrary to Article 2.5.1 of the code which relates to minor over-rate offences.
