India have been docked two points and fined 40% of their match-fee for a slow overrate offence during their seven-wicket defeat to England in the rearranged fifth Test at Edgbaston. They were deemed to be two overs short of their target by match referee David Boon, who enforced the sanction on the team.

This is the third instance of India being penalized for an over-rate trangression in this World Test Championship cycle that has led to docked points. They were docked two points in Nottingham and another point in Centurion, with the Edgbaston sanction taking their total of deducted points to five.
