Windies’ Brathwaite fined for dissent in India defeat

West Indies all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite has been fined 15 per cent of his match fee for "showing dissent" during their ICC World Cup match against India here.

Former India skipper Saurav Ganguly has thrown his weight behind under-fire Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who is facing criticism for his slow-paced knocks in the ongoing World Cup, saying the stumper would definitely succeed due to his experience and ability.

The incident occurred in the 42nd over of India's innings, when Brathwaite protested the umpire's decision of declaring a wide off his bowling. Rahul had departed for a well made 48.

Kohli quickly brought up a 55-ball fifty, but Roach's return to the attack saw Vijay Shankar and Kedar Jadhav edge behind.

West Indies batsmen floundered in their pursuit of 269, and early scalps from the rampant Indian seamers left Holder's team with a steep uphill climb. Fresh from his hat-trick against Afghanistan, Shami delivered a blistering new-ball spell to account for Chris Gayle and Hope.

Shimron Hetmyer strode to the wicket wearing a beaming smile in a Richie Richardson-style floppy sun hat, but trudged off disconsolately with West Indies heading out of the Cricket World Cup.

"The guys bowled well against India and the fielding was much improved but it's about getting all three departments working together to win cricket games", he said. Jasprit Bumrah (two for 9) and Yuzvendra Chahal (two for 39) were the other wicket-takers.

Man of the match Virat Kohli (72) - who brought up his 20,000th worldwide run in record time - held together another fragile display from India's top order, which slumped to 5-180 when he was dismissed in the 39th over.

Dhoni initially found the going tough before getting 16 runs in the final over to finish unbeaten on 56 off 61 deliveries and take India to 268 for seven against the West Indies at Manchester Thursday.
