"The India side was ruled to be an over short of its target when time allowances were taken into consideration," the ICC said in a statement on Sunday.

Accordingly, match referee Chris Broad has imposed a 20 per cent fine on Dhoni, while each of his team mates were docked 10 per cent of their match fees.

With the win at Hambantota, India have taken a 1-0 lead in the five-match series and play the second one-dayer at the same venue on Tuesday.
