On 3 August, the first match of the 5-game T20 series between India and the West Indies was played at the Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad. In this exciting match, the Windies team won by 4 runs and took a 1-0 lead. At the same time, both teams had to reckon with high fines from the ICC after this game.

In the first T20 game, both teams failed to make the overs within the prescribed time, resulting in the Indian players being fined 5 percent of their game fees, while the West Indies team was fined 10 percent of their game fees. India bowled 1 over late while the West Indies bowled 2 overs late.

Richie Richardson, who played the role of referee in that game, informed both captains of this fine. According to Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct, any slow overrun will result in a fine of 5 percent of the game fee. It can be a maximum of 50 percent. Indian captain Hardik Pandya and Windies captain Rovman Powell accepted the fine.

Speaking of the first T20 match, after winning the toss, the West Indies team scored 149 runs in 20 overs while batting first. After that, the Indian team came close to victory and pursued this goal. However, after Jason Holder lost the wickets of captain Hardik Pandya and Sanju Samson in an over, the game turned completely in the West Indies’ favour. The Indian team could only manage 145 points in 20 overs and lost by 4 runs. The second T20 game between the two teams will now be played on August 6th.
