West Indies captain Dwayne Bravo has been suspended from his team's encounter with Sri Lanka in the fifth match of the tri-nation series at the Queen's Park Oval today.

In a decision handed down by the International Cricket Council match referee Jeff Crowe and released on Saturday, it was explained that the all-rounder faces the sanction due to his team’s second minor over-rate offence in a 12-month period.

The West Indies were determined to be one over short of the required over-rate during the fourth match of the series against India on Friday.

It follows on a similar infraction less than a month earlier during the final group match of the Champions Trophy against South Africa at Cardiff on June 14.

Bravo pleaded guilty to the offence and as the West Indies team did not contest the charge, there was no need for a formal hearing on the matter.
