In a statement, ICC said, "In World Test Championship matches a team that is behind the required over rate at the end of a match will have two competition points deducted for each over it is behind."

"Captains will no longer be suspended for repeated or serious over rate breaches. All players should be held equally responsible for slow over rates, and as such will be fined at the same level as the captain," the statement added.
