“In accordance with Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to minimum over rate offences, players are fined 20 percent of their match fee for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time,” the ICC stated in a statement on Sunday.
Dhawan pleaded guilty to the offence and accepted the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing.
On-field umpires Joel Wilson and Leslie Reifer, third umpire Gregory Brathwaite and fourth umpire Nigel Duguid levelled the charge.
India had pulled off a three-run win over the West Indies in the first ODI.
