England found guilty of slow over rate

England's players have been fined 100 per cent of their match fee for slow over rates during the first Test in Brisbane.

ICC Match Referee David Boon found the touring team were five overs behind their target come the end of the match.

They will also lose five World Test Championship points.

Meanwhile, Travis Head will lose 15 per cent of his match fee for "use of an audible obscenity".

Head admitted fault and has accepted the sanction.

Australia won the first Test match by nine-wickets with the second match beginning in Adelaide on Thursday.
