Cook faces a ban if England are punished again for a slow over-rate in the next 12 months

Alastair Cook is on the brink of a one-match ban after England were fined for a slow over-rate in the one-day international against India in Cardiff.

The England captain was fined 20% of his match fee, with the other England players fined 10% of their match fees.

Cook would face a ban if England repeat the offence in one-day international cricket during the next 12 months.

India beat England by 133 runs in the second one-dayer at Cardiff and lead the five-match series 1-0.

The first one-day international at Bristol was abandoned without any play because of rain.

The tourists were fined for a slow over-rate during the fifth-Test defeat by England at The Oval.
