Both the teams now have two points each in the ICC World Test Championship 2021-23 standings heading into the second Test at Lord’s.
Apart from the point deduction, hosts England were also fined 40% of their match fee for slow over-rate while Virat Kohli’s India were also penalised 40% by match referee Chris Broad.
The first Test between England and India at Trent Bridge ended in a draw. With the game evenly poised, both teams were left frustrated on the final day as the game was called off without a ball being bowled.
The two teams will now clash in the second Test at Lord’s on Thursday, 12 August and will hope to put a win against their names in the ICC World Test Championship table.
