Following a two-point penalty, Team India fell to sixth place in the ICC World Test Championship points standings. The Indian cricket team lost to South Africa by an innings and 32 runs, and the International Cricket Council (ICC) has punished them with two points. The ICC docked India two vital points from their World Test Championship (WTC) points table standings because the team did not sustain the necessary over-rate during the Centurion Test. Not only that, but the Indian team has also been penalized 10% of their match fee as part of the penalty. According to an ICC press release, the punishment was applied when it was decided that India was two overs short of the goal. For each over in which their team fails to bowl in the allocated time, players will be penalized 5% of their match fee, by Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which deals with minimum over-rate offenses.
