England captain Eoin Morgan has been suspended for the fourth ODI against Pakistan and fined 40 per cent of his match fee for a slow over-rate during the third ODI, the International Cricket Council has announced.

Richie Richardson, of the ICC's elite panel of match referees, imposed the suspension on Morgan after England were ruled to be two overs short after time allowances were taken into consideration.

England players have been fined 20 per cent of their match fees for maintaining a slow over-rate in the Bristol game.

An ICC statement read: "In accordance with Article 2.22.1 of the ICC code of conduct for players and player support personnel, which relates to minor over-rate offences, players are fined 10 per cent of their match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time, with the captain fined double that amount.
