MIRPUR, Bangladesh (REUTERS) - England cricket skipper Stuart Broad has received his second fine at the World Twenty20 tournament, following his team's slow over-rate in Thursday's six-wicket victory over Sri Lanka in Chittagong.

"(Match referee) David Boon ... imposed the fines after the side, led by Stuart Broad, was ruled to be two overs short of its target when time allowances were taken into consideration," the International Cricket Council (ICC) said in a statement on Friday.

Players are fined 10 per cent of their match fees for every over their side fail to bowl in the allotted time, with the captain fined double that amount.

Broad was therefore fined 40 per cent of his match fee while his players received 20 per cent fines.
