Dhoni in danger of one-match ban for Slow over-rate

Indian skipper MS Dhoni is facing the danger of a one test-match ban unless his side manage to increase their over-rate following slow bowling during England's 1st innings in the opening Test.

India recorded an over-rate of 13 overs per hour instead of the required 15, according to a report in the tabloid 'Daily Express'.

The ICC code of conduct states that the skipper of any team which is found responsible of bowling slow over-rates on three occasions in a 12-month period will face a one-match suspension.

India had failed to maintain the required over-rate during January's 3rd Test against South Africa and the recent match against the West Indies in Barbados.

Even if MS Dhoni escapes punishment at Lord's here, the threat will remain throughout the England Test series, the report said.

  1. Dhoni won't get banned by the ICC though, as it is so dominated by India. He definitely should be banned as his team have let him down and the ICC must be consistent with all captains, but I doubt that will happen here.
