Sir Jason Holder banned for the last Test for a slow over rate!

Everyone else seems to get away with it.

Totally agree to ban captain from test for voer rates. Broadcasters pay a huge maount to televise the cricket matches as well as other sports. A delayed cricket match means they are likely to miss broadcasting the next due sports match (be it tennis or football or baseball or olympics or whatever else is scheduled). The broadcasters may get less revenue as a fine for not broadcasting the scheduled programs. Why shoudl broadcasters suffer becaus eof failure of captain to complete the match on time on every day. Also, as a spectator, the spectators also miss the other sport because of one match not getting completed on time. Why should television viewers suffer. Personally i feel the fines/ bans are very much required.
