IND vs SA: Team India penalised after Centurion Test due to slow-over rate, docked WTC points

When it rains, it pours – the statement is ringing true for the Indian cricket team as if a defeat by an innings and 32 runs against South Africa in Centurion wasn't enough, the visitors were slapped with a fine and a penalty for maintaining slow over-rate in the Boxing Day Test. Team India were found two overs short of the required target and hence were fined 10 per cent of their match fees and a two-point deduction in the World Test Championship standings, which weakened their position even further.
